Around Town

Coming home is not always a joyous occasion when you return. Robert “Rob” Taylor can attest to that, as this was the case for him on last Saturday.

Home Again

Coming home is not always a joyous occasion when you return. Robert “Rob” Taylor can attest to that, as this was the case for him on last Saturday.

Rob returned home to render a solo at the funeral of his friend and classmate James “Jamie” Myles, Jr. You could see the sadness in his face and the tears in his eyes, but that beautiful voice did not falter. He sang loud, strong and expressively, just as any pro would do.

Breast Cancer Walk and Balloon release

Aja Mitchell, Recreational Director organized the Third Annual Breast Cancer Walk and the Fifth Annual Balloon Release on Saturday, Oct. 29 in Donaldsonville.

Participants release the balloons and then began the walk. It was a great turnout once again for the event. The gorgeous weather made it a picture perfect day for a walk.

St. Luke Baptist Church celebrates Family and Friends Day

The Rev. Charles Brown, Sr. of Emmanuel Baptist Church was the guest speaker at the Family and Friends Day celebration at St. Luke Baptist Church.

Pastor Franklin was delighted to see the many members that traveled with Rev. Brown for the service. Celebrating with friends made you feel as if you were a part of their family.

It was a wonderful spirit-filled occasion.

Little Giants

The Ascension Catholic Middle School seventh and eighth grader students ended their football season on Sunday.

The year brought these young little giants to come together as friends and teammates. They learned to be there for one another for encouragements and strength.

As demonstrated in the photo, the injured Sherman Verner, Jr. (52) is leaning on Logan as they huddle to hear from the coaches.

Christmas Cozy

The weather outside is hot, but inside Cabahanosse it’s nice and cold.

Setting the mood for Christmas and holiday shopping, Kay Dugas will serve you up some homemade apple cider or a nice glass of wine to sooth your spirits as you shop.

Stop by and visit. Cabahanosse will be one of the merchants that will participate in the Avenue Stroll on Nov. 19, so make sure to stop by and look around. You just may find something unique and interesting.

On the Flip Side

A truck loaded with sod flipped on its side near Marchand and St. Patrick streets on Monday morning.

The load shifted as it came around the curve and caused the truck to tilt on its side.

No one was injured but there was grass every where.
