2 months and 2 days since
our celebration.

Bon Jou BLS Family Members!
The planning for the 2018 "Genesis: Embracing Our Roots-Building Our Future" BLS Family Reunion is under way under the leadership of our chairperson, 
Rosa Millang, and it is off to a good start. We are going back to where it all began in the Avoyelles Parish of Mansura, Louisiana beginning Friday, July 20 to July 22, 2018. 

During the family reunion, we will have opportunity to meet new family members as well as rekindle family connections as we come together to celebrate our unique heritage.  Each time we come together, we learn something new that we can pass down to our children. As you engage with each other, it will become apparent that we are truly related because you are bound to see someone that looks just like you. Whether Batiste, Lavalais, or Sampson, you are a part of a unique heritage where cultural diversity is engrafted in our DNA.

This is definitely a reunion you don't want to miss. We will explore our French Creole heritage, as well as officially launch the BLS Family Restoration Foundation, a nonprofit eductional and historical society. 

It is our desire that you will come to this awesome time of family, fellowship, and fun. Stay tuned to this site, our family Facebook page, as well as regular communications through the family newsletter for information as it unfolds. 

Wa (twa) pli tar (See You Later)...
