Council on Aging recognizes 19 pioneering seniors

On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Acadia Parish Council on Aging hosted its inaugural Senior Recognition Banquet.

Pike Kaksomen, Lazy Lester’s widow, pauses at the “Rhythm & Swamp Blues” display in the J.D. Miller Music Recording Studio Museum during a recent visit, this particular display containing a photo and autograph of the late singer and harmonica player who was once a staple at the Crowley studio.

Though he died in late August in Paradise, California, Lazy Lester’s spirit and memory will live on in the J.D. Miller Music Recording Studio Museum in Crowley.
