Taylor crowned ‘Mother’s Day Queen’ by AARP
St. Mary AARP Chapter 4435 held its monthly meeting May 7 with an overflow crowd on hand at the St. Mary Senior Citizens Center, home of St. Mary AARP, in Morgan City.
The May meeting was dedicated to “Mother’s Day” in honor of all mothers. During the meeting Ann Taylor was crowned “Mother’s Day Queen” and presented with a gift from the chapter board of directors.
Members were treated to a meal of spaghetti and meat sauce, salad and bread furnished by Klutts Jewelers of Morgan City and prepared by Pat Fryer and friends.
Len Klutts of Klutts Jewelers spoke briefly and announced that his store is expecting to relocate in mid-June to the Guarisco/Evans Shopping Center in Morgan City.
Entertainment for the evening was by illusionist Glen Ghirardi who provided “How did he do that?” moments and singer/song writer Hubert Francis who treated everyone to some oldies.
St. Mary AARP expressed thanks and appreciation to its dedicated sponsors for their loyal support — M C Bank for continuing to supply a monthly anniversary/birthday cake and Mid South Bank for supplying coffee.
It was announced that AARP President Paul Vella is still recovering from knee surgery. His recovery has been slower than expected but Vella said, “I will be back and at 100 percent by the end of May.”
