Retired schoolteacher Dottie Cougevan celebrated her 90th birthday with family and friends at the home of her niece, Raquel Landry, and Raquel’s husband, Paul. The festivities included champagne, catering by Don’s Seafood and DiMartino’s of Covington, and a birthday cake by Krummel’s Mandeville Bake Shop. Dottie still swims an amazing 50 laps a day and cuts her own grass; she says the secret to a long and happy life is “kindness and honesty.”
