Telling Our Stories ~ SHRIMPING INDUSTRY by Mrs. Carlett Boudreaux 9/27 7p

The Museums of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre Museum Foundation are proud to present its “Telling Our Stories” Series of 2018 on Thursday, September 27th, at the Treasures of the Gulf Museum, 308 East Railroad Avenue at 7pm. This month’s topic will be on “Shrimping Industry” by Mrs. Carlette Boudreaux.

In 1949 at the age of 3, my father, mother and I moved to Brownsville, Texas from Morgan City, Louisiana.  The Shrimping Industry brought us here.  My father asked my mother if we could come for one season (which would have been about six months) and the season lasted 66 years.  With some others, my fathers did a lot to improve the South Texas Shrimping Industry.  As of today, he is still located in the Port Isabel area where he docked his first boat when we arrived.

Please join us for an entertaining evening with Mrs. Boudreaux on giving a presentation of the history of the “Shrimping Industry” with emphasis on the Port Isabel and local area. All locals and visitors are welcomed to attend this free presentation. Complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

‘Telling Our Stories” is an educational program aimed to preserving the heritage of the City of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre area. Our goals are to preserve and educate our local and natural history through presentations and exhibits. The program is co-sponsored by the Museums of Port Isabel and the Laguna Museum Foundation. “Telling Our Stories” is presented on the fourth (4Th) Thursday of each month from January through September at the Treasures of the Gulf Museum. Admission is FREE.
