BPHA update - 1 22-2020

Newsletter Jan. 22, 2020 - Bayou  Pigeon  Heritage  Association 

Pigeon  Facebook  Friends...

The Bayou Pigeon  Heritage  Association ( BPHA)  officers  and  Board of Directors after reviewing  the calendar  and available work days  on cleaning  up Facilities.  We have come up  with a date  for a celebratory Lease  signing event.  of  Feb. 28, a Friday,   from 2 - 5 PM at our Heritage Hall ( church).  Open to the  folks  who belong  to the  Pigeon  Facebook group,   and  the general public. It  will not cost to attend.

Preliminary plans  are  that Catholic Church  officials   and other VIP's, eg.,   the Parish  President, Sheriff, Assessor,  Parish Council members,  will be invited and  Refreshments  / food will be  served.

Health permitting  we will ask Mr. Calvin  Leblanc to play a a couple of  songs , The song about  Bayou Pigeon, by  Lou Millett,  and in honor of Roy  Leblanc, the Poor  fishermen,  and maybe one or two more.

We  will have displays  of   our Master plan   with artist renderings professionally  done  of the future development on  display  for  all to see  and  comment and provide suggestions  for improvements and advice... before  we  finalize  anything. 

We have a short video's  on the Heritage of Bayou  Pigeon.

We  will be releasing more  detailed communication on the  event  before  Feb. 1, 2020.

We are asking  for everyone  to Please mark your calendars and hold this date  open.

The date  was  set with the Mardi Ball  season, in mind, which is quite extensive in  Iberville parish, to mitigate conflicts with other parish  wide events..

Preparation  for this  Lease  Signing Event

We  will have a crew working on  clean up  and repair of the  site, every Sunday between now  and  Feb. 28 from 9:00  am until the  afternoon.  The officers  and  board of  directors  will meet at the  end of the  clean up approximately  4 pm,  to review / discuss  any new business  and plans  for the next clean up.

If anyone wants  to help please just  show up  at the  site in your  work  clothes.  Chris Daigle, President,  and other officers  and  directors  will be their to guide  activities.

Special Thanks 

To everyone who helped the with the clean up at the Bayou Pigeon Heritage complex last weekend (Jan. 17 - 20. 

Rick and Patty Phillips  and others worked many hours on  the clean up of the Heritage Hall and the house (former rectory). Some unsightly  bushes  and trees  around the main building  were removed and trimming the Oak tree in front of the house, was  done.  Patty Phillips and Rick  spent   much time cleaning the inside of the  Chapel /  Prayer Room and light fixtures, etc.

Chris Daigle and Rick Phillips made another detailed walk thru of the site and taking notes identifying all the things that need to be looked at repair including the Outdoor  Pavilion and fixing the back door entrance to the  GYM, where the vandals  got in..

Chris Settoon has the electrical power restored and the street lights working and trimmed the  Rose plants in  front of the  church, improving  security.

Steve  &  Mary Toups repaired the  water lines  and the  water to all  buildings turned on where  we can  now start power washing the  site.

Rick  has  some of the power turned on in the GYM.   The main lights in the gym  work but the power to the classrooms is not complete  yet.  Plans  are to get on that repair ASAP.

Chasity  Easley is planning  a house to house effort at Bayou  Pigeon to recruit membership (very  soon), if you  would like to help just give her a  holler!  we are having a new handout printed to facilitate that effort.

Paying  Dues  for membership

Several people have  asked this past  week.  How can i pay my dues?  I  don't  do Internet electronic payment  and / or  Social media  very much!

You can give  your dues to any Officer  or  Board of  Directors... we prefer a  check  so as to act as your receipt.

Our official membership is  now over 50 members, please  consider  joining the association ASAP.

Become Bayou  Pigeon  Proud.

If anyone has  comments or  suggestions on how  we can do better  do not hesitate  to contact any officer  or director.  You can use the comment  section on this message to send us a message.

 I  am Bayou  Pigeon  proud
