Our photo from the past today was sent to me a few years ago by Robert “Bob” Bienvenu. Bob told me the photo was from the Keith and Ann Bienvenu collection, and he had permission to share it with me. Bob passed away a few weeks ago but I am sure he would be delighted to see it on St. Landry Now as we celebrate 2022 Easter. The photograph shows Robert Bienvenu and Lessley Prescott at the Old Garland House on Easter Sunday in about 1941. The two cousins are pocking eggs, a very old South Louisiana tradition. – Courtesy of Ann and Keith Bienvenu

Happy and Blessed Easter from all of us at St. Landry Now!
