Le Vieux Presbytere Open house and membership drive
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Le Vieux Presbytère, I invite you to our Open House from 10am until 12noon, Saturday, October 10, to inaugurate the change of our regularly scheduled hours from Thursdays to Saturday mornings from 10 to 12.
I also ask you to support the museum as a patron this year. It is only with your support that we are able to maintain and improve this invaluable historic structure. Your support also makes it possible for us to sponsor a variety of programs that celebrate and preserve our unique culture here in Louisiana. Over the past year, your generous donations have allowed us to sponsor open houses for Mardi Gras, the Church Point Christmas Parade, and Church Point High School’s Homecoming, as well as to host events such as the annual Veterans’ Day program conducted by the American Legion and the VFW.
Recently, with help from our new intern, we were able to receive a grant for a large roadside marker, denoting the Presbytère’s placement on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, we have updated our exhibits to revitalize our visitors’ experience at the museum and have secured a donor for materials to update the upstairs flooring.
To enroll, please complete and detach the form and follow the mailing instructions stated therein. Be assured that we welcome your suggestions for programs that preserve our culture and our building.
Thank you so much for your support. I look forward to seeing you soon; remember, in addition to our new hours, we are open at other times by appointment.

Mayor Ryan Meche
My goal is your goal. To see our town thrive, to see it grow, but yet to keep its small town spirit and its small town power of caring for our neighbor. My administration will be transparent. We will run our town as a business. We have many plans ahead, we have many goals, and we look forward to watching our town grow with you!
