Lake Charles is a beautiful place and yes we have truly seen better days but at the end of the day, we are a family of people who truly love to live and have fun. When I tell people about many of the things that we have here to explore, many don't truly believe that we have that here and I love proving them wrong.

There will be two upcoming traveling exhibits "Art of Aloha Shirt" and "Infamy: December 7, 1941, that will be open to the public this Friday, April 1 at 6 p.m. inside the Historic City Hall Arts and Cultural Center 1001 Ryan Street. There will also be two additional exhibits by my favorites the Black Heritage Galler and Artisans' Gallery. There will be a joint opening reception planned from 6 to 8 p.m.
