Queen of the Sun

The LSUE Foundation and Friends of the LeDoux Library, in partnership with LSUE Continuing Education, are sponsoring a documentary film presentation of the "Queen of the Sun" on Wednesday, August 31, 5:30-7:30pm. A meet-and-greet will start at 5:30pm; film starts at 6pm; it is free and open to the general public.

The issues in this film are of great interest to gardeners, bee keepers, farmers and any member of the general public who enjoys eating FOOD.

Additional presentations of the film will be available in our many supportive communities in Acadiana in September and October. By taking the film "off campus," the LSUE Foundation hopes to promote the educational mission of LSU Eunice, find some of our lost LSU Eunice alumni and conduct a brief survey on potential future continuing education classes we can offer at or through LSU Eunice.

LSU Eunice will be opening its newest building, the Continuing Education classroom building, in September 2012. We anticipate offering many interesting courses to those who express an interest in these issues; courses could include items such as beekeeping, container gardening, herb gardening, growing sprouts, etc.
