Nominated by Lafourche Home for the Aged:
Mayor Murville J. Pitre, better known as "Pike Pole Pete" by his comrades at Fire Company Protector #2, started cooking at 11 years old. This love for cooking lead him to a profession of cooking for 39 years. Others outside of the 'fire company world' might even recognize him as "the Wal-Mart man," where he greeted customers as they came and went. He still enjoys talking to others and putting smiles on everyone's faces.
Mayor Pitre was accompanied by his daughter, Regina.
