Park Renaming Ceremonies to Honor Those Lost


Parish President Natalie Robottom, Administrative staff and Council Members Sorapuru, Becnel, Madere, Snyder and Perrilloux joined a host of residents and community stakeholders in Edgard to commemorate the naming of the Juan Anthony Joseph Memorial Park,  De‚ÄôVante Michael Smith Memorial Baseball Fields, Raeaneka Lanae Small Memorial Airnasium and Harold Scott Roussel Memorial Park on Wednesday, April 17, 2019.

Council Members Kurt Becnel and Larry Sorapuru spearheaded the naming efforts to pay tribute to those devoted and loved members of the West Bank community by naming the fields and airnasium at the Westbank Recreational Complex.  Assessor Lucien Guaff, who previously served on the Parish Council, initially proposed the Juan Anthony Joseph Park naming and was instrumental in the other efforts. It was also brought to the attention of this Administration that a sign was never erected at the Harold Scott Roussel Park (officially renamed in 1999).  Subsequently, a sign was installed and unveiled at the park on Castle Drive.
