The response has been overwhelming in receiving photographs of service men and women, both living and deceased, from the Carencro area for use in a Veterans Photo Display at the North Regional Library. Due to the generous outpouring of photos from family and friends of the Carencro community, all display cases at the North Regional Library are filled...along with many of their shelves.
"special thanks are due to Cel Boudreaux, Carencro Friends of the Library treasurer, who spread the word throughout the Carencro community," reports Peggy Thibodeaux, NRL Branch Manager. She adds, "this display has attracted so much local interest...many of our citizens visit often to see which new photos have been added."
A reception for the families, veterans, and friends who provided photographs will be held on Veterans Day, November 11, at 11 am at the Carencro Community Center. The photos will be moved to the Carencro Community Center during the reception for viewing. For more information, call the North Regional Library at 896-6323.
