One of our favorite magicians, David LeBoeuf, performs this week!  He is at Turkey Creek at 10 a.m. on Tues. July 14th and at the main library (Ville Platte) on the 14th at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.  On Wednesday the 15th he performs at Pine Prairie at 10 a.m. and at Mamou at 2 p.m.  On Thursday the 16th he performs at Basile at 10 a.m. and at the Chataignier Village Hall (right next to the Chataignier Library) at 3 p.m.  Don’t miss him!

The Library mourns the death of Mr. Gerald Duplechin.  Mr. Duplechin was the Library Board of Control member representing the Pine Prairie/Turkey Creek area.  He had resigned from the board recently due to ill health.  He was a wonderful board member and a fine man.  He will be very much missed.

In Mr. Duplechin’s honor, the Pine Prairie Library will be closed from 1 p.m. onward on Wednesday, July 1st, so that staff can attend his visitation and funeral service in Ville Platte.  Visitation will be at Ardoin’s Funeral Home in Ville Platte, followed by the funeral mass at Sacred Heart in Ville Platte and burial.  There will be a rosary at Ardoin’s at 2:15 p.m.
