I’m really proud of Episode 3 of the 318 Now Podcast. I was honored to have Courtney Hornsby on the show. I’ve known Courtney since she first started as President of the West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce. I feel she and Tom have done an awesome job elevating the West Monroe community. All you have to do is drive around West Monroe and see the growth. I’ve had a great time serving as a Diplomat for the WM Chamber since 2012 and I look forward to continuing to do so!
A few weeks, I attended a WM Chamber Diplomat Luncheon meeting that occurred on Ouachita River Cruises. The kind folks at Newks catered lunch as about 12-15 Diplomats were able to “Cruise the River”. Pat Hudgins and Captain John led the Cruise and were both informative and extremely kind.
Here are a few pictures I took from the Cruise.
Like Pat said on the Podcast, if you’re looking for a nice, quiet and peaceful outing, Ouachita River Cruises is right up your alley! Their website is http://cruiseouachita.com/ , which has pricing info. I’d highly recommend taking family, friends, co-workers or clients on the cruise. I’d imagine someone from outside Monroe would get a kick out of seeing what all surrounds the Ouachita River.
I reached a pretty cool milestone on Facebook this week. I’ve focused on growing the Podcast’s Facebook page. As of this blog entry, we currently stand at 152 likes. That’s a great first week, in my book! And to celebrate eclipsing 100 likes, I’ve decided to hold a contest for the kind people who’ve show support of the Podcast by “liking” the Facebook page.
Pat and Captain John were gracious enough to donate 6 Open Cruise passes to the Podcast, which in turn will be awarded to a lucky Facebook follower. To qualify for the prize, all people have to do is “Share” the 318 Now Podcast page onto their Timeline. Simple enough, right? Hopefully my Facebook supporters will follow through!
I’m super stoked to watch the Dragon Boats race next weekend! The Facebook page is located at https://www.facebook.com/BayouDesiardDragonBoatFestival?fref=ts
If you haven’t watched the Dragon Boats, they’re a lot of fun for the entire family.
My old co-worker and friend, Jeremy Enis, has established himself as an accomplished director of both short and feature films. He’s recently launched a Kickstarter project for a live-action web series and comic book, entitled “Saga of Mong”. If you check out the Kickstarter project page, you can see how cool it would be! Check it out and donate!
I’m excited to say that I’ve gotten plenty of individuals who’ve agreed to be guests on the 318 Now Podcast. I think you’ll find them engaging, informative and entertaining as well.
Have a great weekend!
