Bayou Pigeon Heritage Association News
Several people have asked recently, hey what do ya'll have going on at the old church. I see a lot of activity going on there but don't know much about it.
This means people are starting to take note of our activity at Heritage complex.
This is all part of our strategic plan. To support the mission of the Bayou Pigeon Heritage Association ...
( http://bayoupigeon.com/index.html )
The Association has developed a four part strategic plan.
1. Historical / Cultural / Folklife Preservation of the facilities and Bayou Pigeon documents and pictures creating a sense of Bayou Pigeon Cajun identity.
2. Keep up the facilities to ensure we can provide support For Parish Civil Defense / Disaster Resilience Of Community
3. Renovate / Maintain Prayer Room to Our Lady Queen of Peace in the old Chapel room in the corner of old church for a small number of participants.
4. Co-operatively Organizing And Supporting Events And Activities To Meet The Needs Of The Community. Fostering Community Participation, Unity and Community Economic Well Being
The activity you have been seeing has been cleanup for getting the facility ready for these events. that are part of Element # 4 of our strategy. It all started by in Dec. 2019, with the reintroduction of The Bayou Pigeon Christmas Parade. Ms. Chasity Easley organized that last Christmas and we plan to make it an annual event.
Ms. Kristen Settoon organized a kids movie night.
Mr. Chris Settoon organized two garage sale type events and with 'to go' dinners for sale.
Our effort continues this month with this Halloween event , ie., 'Boo on the Bayou' event.
Ms . Sandy Carbo has privately sponsored this event for the last few years at her restaurant. It has become quite popular and attracted a large crowd.
She has graciously offered to let the Heritage Association pick up and hold the event in the hopes of making it an annual Halloween event.
We will have more tables and treats at the event this year. I think we have more than a dozen tables. All are donated and free of charge to the kids of the community.

November Event - A Wild Beast Cookoff - Mini Fair
In November we have a major event, "A wild beast cookoff and a mini old time Bayou Pigeon fair. I use the term mini because we don't know what the Covid 19 rules will be at that time. The governor is to make an announcement on new Covid 19 rules on Nov. 9. We will follow the rules / guidelines.
Instructions / rules for wild beast cook-off will be posted this week for all to see.
Our Association is picking up momentum. These events are bringing in unique visitors who will inject new revenue into the economy and revitalize Bayou Pigeon.
