Father's Day Weekend Celebration Begins June 16

June 15, 2006 – The annual Father's Day Weekend Celebration will be held on Friday, June 16 through Sunday, June 18, in Frenchtown. Miss Carenage 2006, Amanda Greaux, will be crowned on Friday night. She is a 2006 graduate of the Sts. Peter and Paul High School. The Committee for the Betterment of Carenage Inc. will also pay tribute with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony and a special presentation to the Moby Dick Committee for its efforts in spearheading and promoting the culture and traditions of the French community.
