Despite waking up to freezing cold temperatures, many folks from around the state attended the 18th Louisiana Equine Council Annual Meeting. And boy can we say FOOD, LOTS OF IT! Folks did NOT leave hungry! Each bowl of Shrimp Creole was over flowing with shrimp provided by the Louisiana Seafood Board! We appreciate our guests speakers who included Senator Heather Cloud, Senator Bob Hensgens, Dr. Rachael Cesar Martinez, and Bill Rodier. We also appreciate Daniel Dauphin for his bit clinic and Jessie Jordan for his horsemanship clinic. We thank our MANY volunteers who turned out to man booths and help with other various tasks, we couldn't have done it without you! Special thanks go out to The Busy Bees(Youth Brigade) for their service to community today as they worked tirelessly with any task assigned to them! Hats off to board member Sharyon Thompson who did an amazing job in coordinating this year's annual meeting, Robbin Rosalis for acting Master of Ceremonies, Lisa S. Bell for her culinary and kitchen skills, and Danielle Vale for manning the membership table.
