We Want You in Gretna!

The City of Gretna, Louisiana unveiled the following video at a premier last night.  Salem Lutheran Church and School was represented by our principal and one of our school board members.  While we were walking home from last night's church services, Mayor Harris drove by, got out of his car, and we chatted for a few minutes right there on 4th Street about the exciting things happening in Gretna.  There really are some good things happening in our community.

By the way, the line-up for this year's Heritage Festival on October 7 to 8 includes Grand Funk Railroad, Amanda Shaw, Sara Evans, Molly Hatchet, Frankie Ford, Rockin' Dopsie, and (get out those battle flag lighters, y'all) Lynyrd Skynyrd!  Seven musical stages, lots of restaurants and food booths, and carnival rides.

Y'all come!

There is also a three-minute version and a thirty-second spot.

I like the video. Gretna seems like a nice place to settle. How are the jobs down there?

Dear Mike: If you send me your resume, I would be happy to pass it around. I would love to have you for a neighbor!

Very nice videos. At a certain point in the two longer videos, a sign is highlighted, which has the date of Gretna's incorporation as a city (about 4:32 in the long one and about 2:47 in the medium length one) and I couldn't help notice that Gretna turned 98 just a few days ago, on the Feast of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. Very cool. So August of 2013 will no doubt be a big celebration.
