There were smiles all around as Our Lady of Holy Cross College teamed with the Algiers Economic Development Foundation (AEDF) and Lakewood Country Club to stage an Appreciation Barbeque for the efforts of West Bank first responders throughout and following Hurricane Isaac.
A range of business, public officials, and AEDF and OLHCC officials greeted and served an estimated 300.
Describing the event to the press was Steve Morgan, OLHCC's Coordinator of Alumni and Community Relations and one of the "chief barbequers."
