My calendar is filling up quickly. Seems something is “happening” around town every day. I am not complaining -- I love it!
Be sure to email, call, text, or even facebook message me and let me know what is happening!
Speaking of facebook, if you have not visited the “Kentwood News Ledger” page and clicked on “like” to become a fan, then be sure to take a moment to do so. Updates, links, and breaking news are posted there frequently.
I cover as many events as I can, but if you don’t see me there, or even if you do, please take photos or find someone who is taking photos and have some sent to me. I will gladly publish submitted articles and photos.
Also, please put me on your church’s mailing list if you have a weekly or monthly bulletin. It helps to know what is going on and have contact information if I need more information.
I had the pleasure last week of informing Pam Cook Forrest of the Kentwood Rotary’s decision to honor her with this year’s golf tournament and banquet. This year’s tournament will be held on May 12. Registration forms will be available soon, but you may call Bruce Harrell at 985-229-5955 if you need any other information or need a form emailed to you.
As you know, my column was not printed in the paper last week. It was however available online. Be sure to check out the website at www.tangilena.com.
I have to admit, until yesterday, I had never been to a parade where they threw “groceries!”
Haley and I tagged along with a group of friends to Metairie yesterday to watch the Irish/Italian parade. They were throwing potatoes, cabbage, onions, lemons, garlic, oranges, and other types of produce. They threw toys, candy, beads and even cereal and Ramen Noodles as well!
It was quite fun. The participants were quite friendly and generous.
There were 18 of us in our group, but there were other groups from Kentwood there as well.
I am looking forward to watching my granddaughter Izzie play t-ball this summer. However, it appears that her little sister Avery is not wanting to wait until she is older. At two, she is already giving her mom a tough time, wanting to play rather than watch Izzie practice.
