A Hawaiian luau was the inspiration for the Bayou Preservation
Association's fund-raiser, this year themed Lei-d on the Bayou. Supporters
‹ some in hula skirts ‹ were greeted with traditional leis at hosts
Clayton and Shel Erikson's Memorial home, where a bayou passage came alive
with tiki torches at dusk and hula dancers swayed to the steel-guitar
stylings of Herb Remington. Mai tais were served from cabana-style huts,
as well as tropical treats prepped by A Fare Extraordinaire. On island
time: Jana and Scott Arnoldy, Terry Hershey, Claire and John Caudill, and
Janet Cockrell.
