Veteran's Park Ceremony

The City of Rayne would like to invite everyone, especially Veterans, to attend the dedication ceremony at City Hall at 10:00 a.m. Thursday May 26, 2016 (today) for the overlay of the Boulevard with the name Veterans Parkway. This was passed via State Legislative Act sponsored by State Representative Jack Montoucet, which was requested by Mr. Larry Guidry of Rayne. The Department of Transportation Department (DOTD) will immediately install the permanent signs at the Northern and Southern City Limits of Rayne on LA 35 following the ceremony.
