The sun also shone recently on third- through eighth-graders from Cathedral-Carmel, who were treated to Bach Lunch at Parc Sans Souci for being super readers. (E.J. Krampe from McDonald's provided the lunch.) And it was tea for more than two in Opelousas on May 21, when Rayne Girl Scout Troop # 526 visited The Enchanted Tea Party. The girls dressed up, drank tea, ate scones and modeled an assortment of dresses, hats, boas, shoes and jewelry on the runway. Megan Conner of Lafayette Ballet Theater provided more entertainment, and the tea party concluded with Enchanted Tea Party owner Tammy Lamonte handing out Tea Party badges to the scouts. Now, that's an honor!
What have the adults been up to while the kids are celebrating? Everyone looks forward to Downtown Development Authority and Downtown Lafayette Unlimited's annual Crawfish Boil on the rooftop of the parking garage, and this year's festivities were no exception. Held May 11, the view from up high showcased downtown at dusk and an array of downtown supporters. Blake David, DLU president-elect, started the festivities with a few words on the importance of a vital downtown, and The Tropic Hoppers entertained guests with warm island sounds. The night concluded with a view of a glorious moon shining over downtown.
