The Krewe of Elders celebrated Coronation XIX on Sept. 16 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Bossier City. The Eric Craig Band performed as guests enjoyed a barbecue buffet, silent auction and bar. The glitz and austerity of the event was rivaled only by the dapper black-and-silver attire worn by those in attendance. Mardi Gras royalty were crowned, with Rick Turner and Lawanda Turner taking the titles of King and Queen for 2017.

ANECA Federal Credit Union showed up at Parish Taceaux at 708 Texas St. in late September to surprise customers and pay for their meals. The visit was part of ANECA’s monthly Pay it Forward #theANECAway campaign. As each patron’s meal was being paid for, they were given a small card that read, “Compliments of ANECA Pay it Forward #theANECAway,” as well as a suggestion for how they could keep the momentum going and pay it forward, such as “plant a tree,” “put money in someone else’s parking meter,” “open a door for a stranger” and “pick up lunch for a busy coworker.” ANECA is a not-for-profit community credit union.
