The Kiwanis Club has been based in Houma since 1968.
In addition, Finding Our Roots Museum has received new artwork.
Christina Brown displayed her art piece “Broken Ballerina Girl” to the Kiwannis club. The picture below is of the descendants of Jack Conrad. They presented a piece to the museum in memory of the Thibodaux massacre, which occurred on November 17th, 1887.
