Post 31 members wait for more crawfish.


Child Advocacy and Crawfish

Houma , LA

Houma, Louisiana: On April 21, 2018, Lenox Hotard American Legion Post 31 spent the day doing what everyone enjoys in spring in South Louisiana, cooking and eating crawfish. Although this was not a normal Cajun crawfish boil. There were over 100 teams paying their entry fees and cooking their special mix of crawfish for all of those who came out to enjoy a variety of recipes. All of this was done to support Terrebonne Parish's Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for children. The leader of American Legion Post 31's cooking team was Nick Eschete, Junior Vice Commander. The secret recipe for Post 31 was not selected as the winner, but the day was beautiful, the Post 31 Legion Family had a great time and we met some more great civic-minded citizens. We will get our recipe adjusted and be ready for next year.

Some of our junior Auxiliary members have a little fun on this beautiful day.

Post 31 start to celebrate the 100th year anniversary.

Nick and Kevin are finished with cooking over 80 pounds of crawfish to sell for this youth advocacy program of our parish.

Legionnaires get ready to recruit new members coming to the event.

Friendships created during the day.

Lisa and Dickie Arcement enjoy the day with the rest of the Legion Family.
