St. Bernard Parish Government will hold its 6th annual Hurricane Katrina

the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet. The event to remember the 163 St. Bernard
residents who lost their lives due to Katrina will be Sunday, August 28 at
7:30 a.m.

"As we approach the sixth year of commemorating Hurricane Katrina, I would
like to again take the opportunity to acknowledge the many residents,
business owners, responders, and volunteers for their commitment to St.
Bernard Parish," St. Bernard Parish President Craig P. Taffaro, Jr. said.
"We have said for some time now that there is much to be done and something
for everyone to do. That certainly has not changed, and as we turn the
corner on another year, it is comforting to know that we will make it.
Congratulations to all who have participated in the Recovery and Growth of
St. Bernard Parish, and we remember all those who have passed on as a result
of Katrina and her aftermath."

In addition to the Parish Government Commemorative event on Sunday, August
28, the School Board will hold its annual Day of Reflection Breakfast

Gymnasium at 1101 E. Judge Perez Drive in Chalmette. Tickets will cost a
