St. Joseph manor residents: learning from our past

St. Joseph Manor is a peaceful and thriving retirement community nestled in Thibodaux, Louisiana.

It’s also a place full of history — history of the residents, history of the community, history of a culture. More history than one realizes until you start to listen. And that’s just what the Mass Communication Department’s capstone students did. They listened. And they collected a small piece of history.

For this inaugural issue of Garde Voir Ci — a magazine that looks at South Louisiana culture, life and history — it made sense to start with the past. To start with a little about where we came from. And we have a lot more perspectives to get. But this is the beginning. the beginning of looking at us.
