Dear Friends and Family:
     Our family association has been inactive since the Congrés Mondial 1999.  It is now time to gather again, to renew old acquaintances and start new ones, and to make preparations for the next Congrés in 2004 in Nova Scotia.

     In order to do this, the Arceneaux Descendants Acadiens will be holding a general membership meeting on Monday, May 1st at 6:00 p.m. in the meeting room at the Scott City Hall, 420 Lions Club Road.

     Although a lot of visiting will be going on, the main purpose of this meeting will be to elect a new slate of officers and discuss future plans for the association.  After the elections are complete, we will take general comments and suggestions from the floor.

     Anyone interested is welcome to attend.  For more information, please contact me, Robert Arceneaux at (337) 233-4061 or e-mail me at:

     Although our association has members in other states and countries, the written and mailed form of this letter is only being sent to members in the 705 zip code area, so if you know of somebody outside of the 705 zip code area, please inform them of this meeting.  If you know of somebody in the 705 zip code area who is not in our association but interested, please bring them.

Robert M. Arceneaux
