Also at Regent Broadcasting, KPEL FM held its Bosses Banquet and Appreciation Night at à la carte in October. Office workers from around Acadiana faxed in info to the station about their bosses, and 20 were chosen for an evening of food, spirits, guest speakers and a token of appreciation from KPEL and Lafayette restaurants. Special guest Joey Durel thanked the bosses, and Sen. Mike Michot served as keynote speaker. The evening was a great way for KPEL to say thanks to all its bosses and employees.
Over in Grand Coteau, the Academy of the Sacred Heart Alumnae hosted its annual reunion. A cocktail party at Doe's Eat Place kicked off the weekend, followed by the Mass of Mater Admirabilis Saturday morning in the chapel at the academy. The high school chorus led the group in familiar songs from their school days, and Marie Orgeron of the class of 1966 presented the 2005 Très Bien award to the late Rita Krieg Vega, class of 1969. Christa Vega Billeaud of the class of 1990 accepted the award for her mother. A luncheon rounded out the reunion, and alumni, young and old, reunited at least until next year's festivities.
