Letter: Fishing rodeo sponsors stood fast

In spite of the 4 inches of rain the Atchafalaya Golf Course hosted 100-plus-player 2-man scramble on June 7 past. Not many golf courses would have been playable. We need to acknowledge the great food and beverage sponsors:
—Garber Brothers, Offshore Energy Services boiled crawfish, donated by Garber, AJ Wanous & Johnny’s Seafood
—American Eagle Logistics,Bart Fremin
—Redfish Rentals, Ronnie Grizzaffi
—Ironman Staffing, Nancy Bonin
—NDT, Steve Swisher
—Pelican Contractors, Jonathan Scully
The food was highly complimented.
Unfortunately, the Fishing Rodeo was canceled due to high water and the threat of higher water.
In the end all of our sponsors stuck it out. A special thanks to our major sponsors, we will divvy proceeds to Nicholls State University and South Louisiana Community College, again.
—The Amelia Belle Casino, Michael Pastore, general manager
—Fishman Haygood, LLP, Kerry Miller, partner
—Lambert Law Firm, Cayce Peterson, partner
—Major Equipment, Bob Miller, owner
Due to the extraordinary circumstances in our area the Board felt compelled to write you, Mr. Editor, to quickly get the key message out: “Adversity abounded but Community Spirit Prevailed."
