Meet the Sea Tuckers!

What a day for a fundraiser! The Seatuck event yesterday was a sunny affair, with families of all ages turning out to support this local nature preserve. The postcard exhibition grew as the day progressed as artists added to the display, and author Paul Rodriguez was on hand to read from his book, Goldysocks and the Five Bayous. A portion of sales of Rodriguez's book go straight to helping the bayous of Louisiana. The highlight for us was the performance of the Sea Tuckers, who, under the direction of Jon Pereira and Jesse Neuman, played a series of songs inspired by New Orleans jazz. Thanks to all who volunteered, donated artwork, and attended this event.
