The Lake Charles Chapter of the Xavier University of Louisiana Alumni presented a Fathers' Day Celebration at the Lake Charles Civic Center. The event was held to support scholarships to Xavier University for area students and to support the St. Katharine Drexel Chapel being built on the New Orleans campus.
The celebration featured Gospel music, food and a silent auction.
Xavier University President Dr. Norman Francis and Lake Charles native Dr. Loren Blanchard, Xavier University Vice-President for Academic Affairs were among the honored guests.
We met up with a few proud fathers who attended and asked them to share their words of wisdom about fatherhood.
Thanks to Justin Bobb, Lake Charles Police Department Deputy Chief TJ Bell, Antoinette Bell, Dr. Norman Francis (President, Xavier University), Lawrence Jones, Mary Jane Jones, and the "Bobb kids".
