A first for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority was its new annual community service social. With the theme "A Mid Summer Night's Dream," the social was held July 29 at Ã la carte, and its purpose was twofold. The sorority thanked its Lafayette area supporters and sponsors who help make all AKA community service events possible, and the group also asked guests to bring one book as their admission fee. As a result, AKA collected more than 100 books, which will be donated to Evangeline Elementary, their adopted school for the year.
And at Doe's Eat Place, it was an all-out party for the first anniversary, complete with complimentary champagne and birthday cake in the bar. A cover band provided the tunes and kept guests, like Flo Meadows, Aileen Bennett and Sean Ryder, Al Lopez and Arlene Leblanc, celebrating for quite a while. Henry and Kimberly Schuler Florsheim, along with Robin Chapman and Steven Hebert, pulled right up to the bar, ensuring Doe's had a proper birthday. And owner Barr Brown and manager Holly Rabalais were all smiles at the success of their restaurant venture!
