      Oh boy, Chalmette. What can I say about her? I know the times that I have had here will always stick with me forever. I met my first love here, had my first kiss, and even enjoyed watching the ships go up and down the Mississippi as a child.

      There is a unanimous decision by my family that we will participate in next years downtown function, so be on the lookout for a goofy dad! I know family is important to many living here, and the mighty Mississippi makes you think twice about playing any games.

      You must respect nature, and with so much at stake we must begin living better. I can see how important living here would be to one who is invested, but the numbers don't lie and we are doing very well here. Housing is affordable and children are learning faster than we can teach them. Check out Chalmette one day with your family or friends, we welcome all newcomers!
