The Friday night downpour cleared the weather for a wonderfully cool evening so that friends of Geneva Academy could gather at the home of Aleta and Aaron Eley on May 31 for Lousiana Saturday Night – a crawfish boil benefitting Geneva Academy. The end of the school year was celebrated in true Louisiana fashion. Mason jars full of wildflowers and newspaper tablecloths set the laid back tone. Guests were provided mountains of tasty crawfish courtesy of Robbie McBroom and Zing’s Crawfish. Marsala Beverage provided copious libations to keep everyone in high spirits. Jambalaya, scrumptious homemade bread pudding and French bread created a fare sure to make any Cajun jealous. The party was kicked up a notch by the timeless tunes of the Blue Rhythm Band. Party goers danced and sang into the late hours of a cool summer night. Special thanks to Jeremy Harrell and Marion State Bank, Dawn and Todd May, Bethany Wilkins, Ed Lang, Jordan Myers, Jackie Peacock, Jennifer Lizenby, Connie Merritt and Stephanie Bailey for all of their efforts in making the night a success!
