By Barb Turner, Publicity Chair

The 45th Family Campers & RVers International Retiree Rally will be held at the Terrebonne Civic Center, Huoma, Louisiana, March 15-21. The early days will be March 11-14. The theme for the rally is ‘Let the Good Times Roll.’ Ron & Reba Ray (GA), the rally coordinators and their rally committee are planning a great time for attendees in Cajun Country.
Huoma is a new location for the Retiree Rally. Houma and the surrounding communities are steeped in Cajun tradition and culture which is a creolization of Native American, Acadian and African traditions. Downtown Houma has been listed as a significant historic district on the National Register of Historic Places. It offers a downtown walking tour and attractions such as the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum, the Folklife Culture Center, the Regional Military Museum, Southdown Plantation, the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center, monuments to local armed forces, and local eateries. Enjoy the Cajun cuisine.
Although Houma is quickly changing, many residents in the surrounding communities continue to make their living as their ancestors did. They are shrimpers, oystermen, crabbers, fishermen, and trappers, although more are beginning to work in occupations of the oil industry and ship building. Many long-standing traditions and lifestyles remain as part of the area’s rich cultural history. Houma is also the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, and home to Louisiana’s second-oldest high school, Terrebonne High School.
The Terrebonne Civic Center is a wonderful facility for the rally. Pedestals for RVs include complete access to water and 30-50 amps of electricity. Several dumping stations are on site.Huoma3
