2010 Acadia VFC Achievement Day
The movie, “All The King’s Men,” really hit home with special guests, “The Browns”...Michelle, Briggs and Megan Brown, during the 2010 Achievement Day Program held Thursday, May 20, by ladies of the Acadia Volunteers for Family and Community.
Briggs and his mother, Michelle, shared their experiences when Briggs starred in this movie. He was only nine years old at the time when he played his accordian in one of the scenes with Sean Penn. Following their program, Briggs and his sister, Megan, entertained members in attendance with their music. Briggs, on his accordian made by his father, and Megan on her guitar, played several songs with Megan signing most of them.
Elaine Chatagnier, AVFC President presided over the 2010 Achievement Day program held at the Acadia Extension Convention Center in Crowley.
Approximately 50 members and guests attended the annual event.
For the opening ceremonies, presentation of the colors and the Pledge of Allegiance was led by Ruth Ann Klumpp, VP for Programs, with the welcome by Barrett Courville, Acadia Extension Parish Chairman.
In keeping with the theme, “Lights, Cameria, Action: AVFC Goes Hollywood,” three Night Club members, Martha Grantham, Rita Benoit and Mary Ann Sagrera, told of their favorite movies with a program.
“Lights Camera, Action” could not be complete without “Walking the red carpet.” Members walked the red carpet to receive their awards. These awards were made for competition in the many categories opened to members.
A special game tested members on their movie trivia knowledge with a “walk down the red carpet” to receive their trophy for getting the correct answer.
Everyone then enjoyed a delicious catered meal, followed by ultimate desserts prepared by VFC members.
A complete list of contest winners will be carried in Thursday’s edition of The Rayne Acadian-Tribune.
