Wish to Fish Louisiana is a non profit organization dedicated to providing the youth of Louisiana with the opportunity to explore and earn an appreciation of the natural beauty that exists in South Louisiana; specifically, areas that are only accessible on the lakes and waterways of our state. Wish to Fish recently held an event at the Lake Catherine Island Marina. The event benefited the children of Veterans and Active Members of the United States Armed Services. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had the opportunity to join the numerous willing volunteers who contributed their time and efforts to making this an unforgettable experience for the children in attendance. Capturing images as professional fishing guides created a memorable fishing experience for these deserving youths was a truly rewarding experience. The smiles, laughter and utter delight evident on the faces of these youngsters as they reeled in redfish, speckled trout, flounder, drum and Bass, make it clear that the event was a resounding success. Thanks to the efforts of the Wish to Fish Staff, volunteers, and professional fishing guides, this was an experience that these deserving youth will never forget.
Friends and family planned meticulously to ensure a memorable 50th anniversary surprise party for Mike and Dee Archuleta. Anticipating celebrating a granddaughter’s birthday, when the couple arrived they were instead stunned with shouts of “surprise” as they walked through the door. Their expressions were priceless. What a fun and festive evening as generations of family members and friends enjoyed some of Mike and Dee’s “moments that matter.” Congratulations to this wonderful couple on a marriage that has flourished for half a decade!
We had the good fortune to spend a few brief moments with these lovely young ladies as they prepared for a High School right of passage, Homecoming. The memories from this night will be among the many memories that they will reflect upon through the years. Ladies, savor the moments, and get ready to experience many more “moments that matter” soon!
