THE POST-SIGNAL / Danette Bourque
In honor of Flag Day (June 14), members of VFW Post 6720 and its Ladies Auxilliary, American Legion Post 15 and Woodmen of the World Chapter 6 held an American flag retirement ceremony led by Commander Lee Wright, far right, on Thursday, June 12. Assisting him were, from left, Horace Thibodeaux and Patrick Hebert.
American Legion Post 15 honored its Educator of the Year, Jessica Robichaux, right, at its Wednesday, Feb. 19, meeting. Robichaux is a first grade teacher at North Crowley Elementary, where she has taught for the past 17 years. She developed a special curriculum for at-risk children that was so successful it was implemented by other parishes and asked for her assistance in training the teachers in those parishes. Post 15 Adjutant A.J. Jones, left, presented her with a plaque in appreciation of her extraordinary service to the children of Acadia Parish.
