It was an afternoon of “new” at the Rotary Club of Crowley’s Tuesday meeting. A new president, Pat Miers, took over the club for the year, and the club heard of a new parishwide initiative that looks to improve its façade and attractiveness to new businesses, new residents and more.

Children’s Movie series continues at library

With the weather forecast to be rainy and downright yucky this coming weekend, Saturday will be the perfect time to visit the Crowley library and enjoy the monthly Saturday Morning Children’s Movie.
This Saturday (April 11), “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” will be shown beginning at 10 a.m. The movie is the third installment of the Night at the Museum series.

Opening the dialogue on long term placement

From left, Rotary Club of Crowley President Mary Zaunbrecher, left, thanks Angelique Credeur (guest speaker) and Rotarian Bertha Mire (program organizer) for Tuesday’s program on long-term and short-term admissions to nursing homes.

There may not be a more difficult and/or awkward conversation to have with a loved one as the one that concerns nursing homes.
Often times, that conversation comes late in the game, when a loved has started changing as a person or has been admitted to a hospital and the need for long-term care has become obvious.
It’s perhaps what makes the discussion so difficult as the needs now outweigh the particular wants of the individual in question.

Proctor named to school board

Rev. James Proctor

For the next six months, a Proctor will be back on the Acadia Parish School Board.
Just a different one this time.
For years, Dr. Ezora Proctor was a part of the school board. Now her husband, Rev. James Proctor will be, at least temporarily, in service in District 1.

Shea Bertrand has spent a good chunk of his young life helping others.

'Great experience'

Members of the M.H.S. Alumni Relay Team have been helping Luminaria Chair Thelma Fuselier, far left, set up this year’s Luminaria bags as well as in years past. Helping Fuselier recently were, from left, Connie Frugé, Paula Broussard and Glenda Guillory.

As the sun sets, things are typically just getting started for Relay For Life, but a few hours in, when the darkness truly hits, Relay grasps at your heartstrings.
It is then, typically at 9 p.m., that all the lights are turned off and the only light that lines the track are those from bags and torches honoring cancer survivors, recognizing caregivers and remembering someone who has lost his or her life to cancer.
