Haunted Train for Halloween

Haunted Train Oct 31st 5-7:30pm at Moffat Road Railroad MuseumWe had a blast-and-a-half spooking kids of all ages. We were surprised how many young ones got on board the train, and we quickly figured out how to downplay the scariness level when needed.

Thank You for a great 2021 Crawfish Boil

Thanks to those who joined us for our Louisiana-style Crawfish Boil on Saturday, September 4th, 2021. We hope everyone enjoyed the food, activities and music!

We couldn’t have done it without the hard work and hustle of our staff, board and friends! We are very grateful to them and would like to thank everyone who helped.

And a special thanks to Fontenot’s for providing the delicious food and Diane Ehlert with Elev8 Your Cause for being our event planner and marketer.
