The Acadian Museum of Erath will induct long-time Lafayette Televison Anchor and Community Volunteer, Maria Placer into its Order of Living Legends. The event will be a fundraiser for the Acadian Museum, a volunteer non-profit organization. We had the pleasure of visiting the Museum when our colleague Camey Doucet was inducted last year. It's a 'don't miss' stop on any tour involving Cajun History. 
The induction ceremony will be at Noon on Saturday, July 3rd at the Acadian Museum Annex #1, 11607 Hwy. 89.  (Kermit Bouillion’s camp on Lake Peigneur a few miles south of Lafayette) Note: In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to L’Eglise, in LeBlanc, 3203 J. Alcee Rd.
Admission to the event is $10 per person, which includes a barbecue dinner with dessert, beer and drinks. Music will be provided by Joe D and Coulee Kenney Band. All proceeds will go to the Acadian Museum. Tickets may be purchased from the Acadian Museum in Erath or at Perrin, Landry, deLaunay, Dartez & Ouellet, 251 La Rue France, Lafayette. For more information, contact Event Chairman Jean Frigault at 337-262-5810.
Comgratulations, Maria, from your friends at KTDY!
