Thibodaux Wins Cleanest City District III Title!
The Louisiana Garden Club Federation District III Director, Stella C. Lasseigne, informed Mayor Charles Caillouet and members of the Thibodaux Garden Club of the district win on Thursday night. The contest was held on Wednesday April 17th. Judges from the Louisiana Garden Club Federation rode a designated route to determine if the City of Thibodaux had what it takes to be named district winner. The judges who where from Lake Charles and Iowa, LA have had experience judging on both the state and district levels. They were treated to a reception at City Hall on the morning of the contest.
Thibodaux competed against Morgan City; whose populations’ range from 8,001 – 16,000, which places both cities in category D. The city will compete in the State Cleanest City Contest against other District D winners throughout the entire state. “Visiting the other city’s in our district just exemplifies the pride that we all have in our communities. The Garden Club members are very proud of all the cities that participated in the contest because they are all winners”, stated Stella Lasseigne, District III Chairman.
Thibodaux’s first district win was back in 1970 and has had 11 district wins since then with four of those wins leading to the Cleanest City State Title. A very excited Mayor Charles Caillouet stated that if the city continues to band together as we did for this district win we certainly have a good chance in going all the way to the top and receiving the highest honor of being the state champs. “The state competition is much harder due to the competition being tougher. Now we are competing directly against other winners. We have to strive harder to get the city ready for this next step of competition. As of this time, we have not been told when the state judging will take place, but as soon as we have word we will let everyone know so that we can once again prepare our beautiful city,” said Mayor Charles Caillouet.
Mayor Caillouet extends a special thanks to all employees of the city who worked long and diligently to make this win possible.
