Betty Bernard -- A Living Legend

Saturday was a very special day for Betty Bernard and all her family and friends as she was inducted into the Order of Living Legends at the Acadiana Museum in Erath. This honor is given to those who work to preserve the Cajun culture and are ambassadors for spreading the word about the Cajun heritage. The induction, which was held during the Cajun jam session at the Museum Cafe, was attended by Betty's family, former co-workers, local friends and many members of her RV family from all over North America. We were so happy to be part of the ceremony for this most deserving honoree. I was especially honored to be asked to speak on her behalf. She truly is a very special lady.

Rather than trying to capture the event in one blog entry here are links to three sites with more pictures and details about Betty. Here is a link to a web album with pictures of the day's activities. This link is to the Acadiana Museum article about Betty's induction. This last link is to a blog where you can leave a message on the guestbook for Betty. This was a surprise so I did not want to put it on the blog before the ceremony, but I am sure Betty would love to hear from her many friends.
