*The book Héberts, Cajuns, and Louisiana has been published under the sponsorship of the Family Association. The book written by Life Member Joe Hébert is ready for pre-sale now. Only 100 hard cover copies will be published for pre-reunion sale. Thereafter, orders will be taken for books to be shipped after the reunion, unless the entire initial order is sold out in time to re-order before the reunion. A description of the book and an order form is enclosed. Committee members are Joe, Edwin, and Woody Hébert.
*The Family Association Memorial Marker “Walk of Names” Project begins with this issue of La Gazette. Association family members will have through June 25 to purchase bricks before the program is presented to the citizens of Abbeville. On the back of this page you will find the draft of a letter that will explain the program. On a first-come, first- served basis anyone with the Hébert surname will be given the opportunity to purchase a brick(s) in a special designated Hébert area around the Memorial Marker. There are approximately 120 bricks available for sale in this special area. Therefore, it is important that you get your order in early. Committee members are Sheila Hébert Collins, Barbara Hébert Hébert, and Lovelis “Buddy” Hébert.
*The Family Association Afghan is in the design stage and hopefully will be ready for sale just prior to the reunion. Place your orders now to receive your afghan before the reunion. Orders received after August 1 will be shipped after the reunion. The afghan committee is made up of three people who we know will do a great job on the design. An order form is enclosed with this issue. Committee members are Judge Byron Hébert, Alice Hébert Lancon, and Joyce Hébert Legé.
