Thank you, Bienville House and Iris Restaurant!

Today's media party at the Bienville House was a treat..perfect weather from Mother Nature, delicious food from Iris Restaurant, a gorgeous courtyard setting provided by The Bienville House Hotel, amazing music from Pierre Pichon and company, and great eye candy provided by several krewe members in costume.
Above, Cecile Andry, president of the Council of French Societies, speaks about her enthusiasm for the Joan of Arc Project and our upcoming Bastille Day celebration on July 14th at 10:30 a.m. at The Market Cafe, behind the Joan of Arc statue at New Place de France (St. Phillip and Decatur Streets).
Artists, community organizations, writers, photographers, krewe members, and French Quarter businesses were present today to celebrate the launch of our website, the expansion of our group from the St. Joan Parade to the Joan of Arc Project, (which includes the Krewe de Jeanne d'Arc, The Joan of Arts Fete and the St. Joan of Arc Parade) and to hear about our upcoming events and collaborations. New friendships were made today with the Consulate General of France, Metropolitan Center for Women and Children, the Krewe du Faye Fairies, the Vieux Carre Commission, and more. Thanks to all who came out to support us, take photos, and keep the spirit of Joan alive. This was a great kickoff to a wonderful year ahead!
