Ville Platte Rotary Meeting

Rotary Club Meeting – 4-30-24


The program at Tuesday’s Rotary luncheon was presented by Rotarian Brent Coreil.  Brent invited Silver Eagle Socials President, Rhonda Lafleur, to speak about this volunteer, non-profit organization that provides weekly lunch and games for our senior and disabled citizens.  Inspired by her Great Aunt’s desire to have socials for seniors and by Rhonda’s desire to give back, she formed this organization on March 3, 2011.  Rhonda presented a business plan to the Mayor of Pine Prairie in 2010 to meet at the new Community Center.  The Silver Eagle Socials have been meeting every Tuesday since then from 10:00 – 1:00 for coffee, visits, exercise, book swaps, blood pressure checks, bingo, prizes and lunch.  Guests attend from Mamou, Pine Prairie, Turkey Creek, Ville Platte and Oakdale.  The cost for the guests is $5.00 to help cover the basic costs, and everything else is provided by volunteers.  The average weekly attendance is 80 people, and the range has been from 33 at the beginning up to 111 people.  There are 8 volunteers who cook, clean, serve and organize weekly meetings.


Rhonda thanked everyone for considering donating to this organization to help give back to those who have given so much.
