Retiree Rally - 2019
‘Blue Bayou’, the 48th International FCRV Retiree Rally, will be held at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center, Houma, Louisiana March 19-24, 2019. The early days will be March 15-18. Dallas & Barb Dodson are the Rally Coordinators.
Houma is the parish seat of Terrebonne Parish as well as its largest city. It was colonized by European-Americans in 1834, and, interestingly, was named for the early Houma people who once occupied the area. The area was developed for sugar cane plantations which were located along the rivers and bayous for ease of transportation. Downtown Houma has been designated as an historic district, featuring the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum, the Folklife Culture Center, the Regional Military Museum, and Southdown Plantation. Of course, many Cajun eateries can be enjoyed.
The 2019 Retiree Rally Committee will provide an excellent week of activities, including the crowning of the 2019 International FCRV Retiree King & Queen. The rally fee includes all the activities, entertainment, and two meals.
Register for the ‘Blue Bayou’ experience with FCRV members in March.
