Legislators from across Louisiana and their staffs were served a taste of St. Bernard courtesy of local restaurants, businesses, and local commercial fishermen. Displays highlighted our rich culture, industries and upgraded educational facilities. The Chalmette High School Jazz Band Trio provided music throughout the evening. “This reception allows us a chance to visit with the men and women who vote on issues important to us,” said Parish President Guy McInnis.
“It was a team effort with our parish government employees, sponsors and community partners coming together to produce an excellent reception that made a favorable impression on state leaders and helped make the Baton Rouge decision makers aware about St. Bernard’s interests,” said McInnis.
In addition to the reception, St. Bernard residents had the opportunity to visit the Mississippi River Basin model at the LSU Center for River Studies.
