Part of KVPI Staff spoke to Ville Platte Rotary Club

Rotary Club Meeting – 5-14-24


The program at Tuesday’s Rotary luncheon was presented by Rotarian Kristi Enicke, and she invited Mark Layne and members of the staff from KVPI.  KVPI was just awarded the Small Market Radio Station of the Year award, and the Uniquely Louisiana Award by the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters in March.  Mark thanked Kristi for inviting us, and for the Community for making it possible for KVPI to continue to be the voice of Ville Platte and Cajun culture… keeping alive the Cajun French language with La Tasse de Café, French Newscasts, and Cajun French Music.  Also, continuing the Swamp Pop and Fred’s Lounge, covering local sports, community events and news and so much more.  Mark also invited Jackie Miller, Mike Perron and Misty Parker to speak and share stories about what it means to be part of KVPI.  We all love being part of KVPI and were happy to be able to share our stories with the Rotary.
