The Guidry family arrives in Texas!!
by Marty Guidry
Monday, April 25, 2011

Les Guédry d'Asteur (the Guedry, Guidry, Gaidry, Jeddry, Geddry, Labine, LaBean Acadian family association) will hold its next meeting in Beaumont, Texas on 30 April 2011 from 10:00 a.m. until noon in the Conference Room of the Wells Fargo Business Banking Office at 6520 Delaware Street.

In 1999, over 60 Acadian families held family reunions in southern Louisiana during the 2nd Congrès Mondial Acadien (World Acadian Congress), a worldwide assembly of Acadians.  The Guidry/Guedry family is planning its next reunion during the Grand Réveil Acadien (Great Acadian Awakening), which will take place from 7-16 October 2011 across southern Louisiana.  The Guidry/Guedry Reunion will be on 8 October 2011 in Cut Off, Louisiana.  Anyone with an interest in the Guidry/Guedry family is invited to attend.

Come take part in planning the reunion!  There will also be a discussion on the history of the organization, and Martin Guidry, President of the organization, will present a powerpoint program on the "Guédry-Guidry family of Southeast Texas from the 1830s through World War II".   Everyone is invited to join the group afterwards at a local restaurant.
