Betty Burke sought to answer that question during this portion of the “Senior Moments” theatrical revue, which opened in L’Ardoise last week and will arrive at St. Louis Parish Hall in Louisdale tomorrow (March 22) night before making stops in Isle Madame and Lower River Inhabitants.
Swim The Canal, currently gearing up for its fifth edition in St. Peter’s this coming summer, was among the slices of Richmond County life captured by Dwight Brymer in his submissions to the Photovoice portion of the New Horizons Arts for Seniors project, which held its official launch March 14 at the L’Ardoise Community Centre.
