It's Jamboree Time!
The annual game is only a week away. At the recent meeting, our own club member, Vinnie Bullera, who is also the Westminster coach, took home the annual crying towel award. Vinnie shared a story about ordering size 7 and 8 shoes, and the vendor if he was getting this for his Jr. High team. Vinnie said no, it was for his offensive linemen!
At the meeting of 7/20/16, Dirk Boudreaux, club president, presented a check to Scholarship winner Aaron Whipp of Opelousas Catholic. Aaron will attend LSU Eunice in the fall and hopes to continue his studies at the University of Louisiana. Good luck Aaron. Pictured is Dirk Boudreaux, Aaron Whipp, and his father Troy Whipp.
