Lafayette Sertoma met for an awards banquet at Zea’s, and what better way to honor Sertoman of the Year Lucas Lupo and Service to Mankind recipient Kathy LaFleur? Called to order by President Donna Fischer, the group wined and dined in a private room. Doing their civic duty that evening were Marty Audiffred; incoming president Jamie Hebert; Corey Jack; Brett and Donna Mellington; Leonard Louvierre; Treasurer Stephanie Guidry; Vincent and Paulette Lupo, of Lake Charles; and “honorary” Sertomans Greg Moroux and David Beckham look-alike Dr. Rick Quincy.

And so say all of us. Dealership diva Sharon Moss celebrated her birthday in style with a private party at Marcello’s. Champagne greeted arriving guests and among those wishing La Moss many happy returns were her son Coury, Chip and Jennifer Jackson, Teal Fresh, David Baker, Dr. Lee Leonard, The Advocate’s own Kathie Zimmermann, and, of course, Sharon’s longtime gentleman friend Dr. Curtis Roy, who said he was absolutely keeping her another year.
