A retirement party was held at Riverside Inn for Bonnie Broussard, who just retired after a wonderful 46.5 years with Williams Insurance Agency — almost half the time it’s been in business! Bonnie, who lives in Crowley, was a commercial customer service representative and worked in the Crowley and Lafayette offices. All of her coworkers and friends came out to bid her a warm adieu and have some good grub in the process. The guests munched on goodies such as alligator tidbits, Cajun crabfingers – marinated and fried, – catfish bites, oyster en brochette, and crab boulettes. Then everybody picked out what they wanted for their dinner, and for dessert there were mounds of homemade bread pudding, California-style cheesecake, crème brûlée cheesecake, and gourmet chocolate turtle cake. Everyone left with full bellies and warm hearts.
