TRAHAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION MEETING:

Sept. 19, 2015 Recap

The Trahan Family Assoc. met on Sept. 19, 2015 at Soop's Restaurant in Maurice for a discussion of the Associations participation in the upcoming GRA2015, or more specifically the Grand Rveil Acadian (The Great Acadian Awakening) to be held across South Louisiana in October of this year.  For more details please go to www.Louisiane-Acadie.com  and go to the sub-site GRA2015 for a complete listing of the activities.

The Trahan Family Assoc. has already contracted for a table in the Convention Center, Cajundome 444 Cajundome Blvd., Lafayette, La. on Friday, Oct. 9, along with several other Acadian Families where members will be greeted and will be able to participate in many assorted activities including exhibits, films, fascinating panel presentations, genealogy, cuisine, French conversation tables, mini-Tintamarre by 9 year old French Immersion Students.  This will all be held from 8 am to 4 pm.

On Saturday, Oct. 10, different activities will be on-going all around the Lafayette area, just too numerous enumerate here.  So go to the website and decide what event you want to enjoy.

One of the main event will be a French Mass at 9:00 am at St. John Cathedral at 515 Cathedral St., Lafayette, La.  A French Canadian Choir will be doing the singing in French at the Mass.

Following the Mass, at 10:30 a Cajun Tintamarre or "Loud and Proud  Parade" will start on the parking lot.  This is a noise making walking parade making its way to Downtown Lafayette (Approx. 3/4 mile) to a warehouse turned into an excellent celebration place.  Those unable to do the walk will be able to ride in provided coaches or autos.

At the "Warehouse" musical performances by great Cajun musicians, and on and on with other activities.  For that reason, please go to the website and choose your activity of choice.

Following a few pictures of the meeting on the 19th, where all enjoyed a great meal of their choice.

Special Note:  The Trahan Yard Sign seen on the wall in some of the pictures are available for $22.00.  The have their own metal stand to insert in ground and measure 18 x 24 inches and would have to be picked up as it is too expensive to mail.  I have 19 left and its on a first come first served basis.
