EVENTS >> 2-22-17


The Jacksonville Senior Wellness and Activity Center will hold its Taste of New Orleans fundraiser dinner from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the Jacksonville Community Center’s banquet hall.

Tickets are $20. Live jazz music will be performed by the Jacksonville Lighthouse Charter School High School band and Randy McDonald.

Reservations are requested to know how much food to cook. Tickets can be purchased at the seniors center, 100 Victory Circle, or by calling Connie Evans at 501-982-7531.

All proceeds benefit the seniors center, which helps arrange home-delivered meals, transportation to doctors appointments, shopping, activities and daytrips.

The center has exercise and educational programs. It serves community meals at 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Assistant director Connie Evans is cooking all the food using her family’s recipes. She is originally from New Orleans.

The menu includes red beans and rice with smoked sausage, chicken and sausage gumbo with rice and jambalaya. They are the three main dishes of New Orleans cuisine.

Evans is making mild and spicy versions of all the dishes.

“My favorite is jambalaya, because it has shrimp, and I love seafood,” she said.

“Last year was a success. We sold 200 tickets and raised $3,000 for the senior center. People could not wait for this year,” Evans said.

Senior center chef Frances Travis is baking the king cakes.


The Community Theatre of Cabot will host a Mardi Gras night at 6 p.m. Friday at new events center at the Cabot Community Center, 508 N. Lincoln St.
