Louisiana Historic Creole Families Gathered in Ville Platte Saturday





       People from as far away as Point Coupee Parish and New Orleans gathered in Ville Platte Saturday  at the Civic Center Pavillion to honor Louisiana’s Historic Creole families. Emceeing the event was French Educator and Author John Lafleur. Among those who spoke was Dr. Ina Fandrich who read a letter saluting the French Creole families from the French Consul General. Dr. Fandrich also introduced singer musician Andrew from Ghana. There were a number of people from Avoyelles Parish. Ville Platte Mayor Jennifer Vidrine welcomed the group to Ville Platte. A petition was prepared and signed for legislative action next year to recognize July 14 as Bastille Day , a state holiday in Louisiana to recognize the French Creole families in Louisiana. KVPI Classic Country 1050 was there as we broadcast the entire program for those who could not attend.
