The Acadiana Power Squadron also held a banquet recently, with a Change of Watch Ceremony and dinner at the City Club at River Ranch. The organization is dedicated to safe boating and boating education, a big job this time of year as everybody's ready to get out on the water. Incoming and outgoing commanders were presented with officers' flags, and Dee Nolan outdid herself with the nautical-themed decorations and special activities for the event. Some special out-of-town guests made appearances, including New Orleans' young soloist Angelis Gray who sang beautiful renditions of "Anchors Away" and "Amazing Grace." Keep up the good work guys!
Party Girl had a ball at the 46th annual George Washington DAR Ball for the Galvez and Attakapas chapters at the Petroleum Club. Eight debutantes and patriots were honored, dressed to the nines in white dresses and sharp suits. "They were very beautiful," says Publicity Chair Kay Judice. "They all had a wonderful time." Mrs. Wallace Aaron LaFleur served as general chairman of the ball, Compatriot Stanton Hardee Jr. as captain and Compatriot Henry P. Hebert Jr. as master of ceremonies. Mrs. Frederick M. de la Houssaye, an honorary past regent, was an elegant marshall. After the stunning debutantes and young patriots were presented, the program ended with the traditional cutting of the George Washington birthday cake with commemorative swords. What a sight!
