May 19 2023 | Latest News

Our MSWIT Bus Fam Tour exploring Louisiana River Parishes was FANTASTIC!    A full bus of members experienced and learned so much in just a short amount of time.   

First of all.. thanks to Willma Harvey, DOS & Business Development for River Parishes Tourist Commission, for all the advance planning and hard work involved in making this experience so memorable for all our members.   Theron "do you get the picture" Oubre, our Tour Guide on the bus, was absolutely amazing!

Special thanks to Leslie Brewer, DOS for both Destrehan Plantation and GREAT RIVER ROAD STEAMBOAT MUSEUM at Houmas House & Gardens for all her hard work and special hospitality in making our members feel so welcome.    Diane "Gumbo Marie" Honore, a direct decendent of Destrehan, gave us an incredible tour.

We thank Leslie Barrett of Cajun Pride Swamp Tours as well as Captain Dustin who gave us quite an experience in the Manchac Swamp!

Chef Spuddy Faucheaux with Spuddy's Cajun Cooking Experience not only fed us a delicious lunch but also charmed us with some great Cajun Cooking humor!!!

Also, we can't forget Shannon Hamm with Hotard Coaches providing a cool and comfortable motorcoach and a really great bus driver, Derek!

Last but not least, we thank Christy Dillard with GAME ON Social Hub for allowing us to use their new parking lot for our bus to pick up and drop off.

Best of all, our members really had the opportunity to get to know other members as they shared all this delightful experience together!
