Better Days on the Bayou Group Launches Christmas Initiative

New Iberia, November 21, 2019: Christmas holidays are right around the corner, and so is a new initiative to bolster the Christmas spirit around Iberia Parish. The “Better Days On the Bayou” organization recently announced its new community project, “Noel Iberia” at the New Iberia City Council and Iberia Parish Council meetings. The program encourages both City and Parish elected officials to decorate a prominent area of their district for Christmas. District 6 Parish Council Member and Better Days On the Bayou co-founder Natalie Broussard touts the idea as a way for elected officials to showcase their areas while spreading cheer and goodwill.  “All too often, as elected officials, our tasks are to help constituent’s with issues or problems. This is a way to do something fun in the community and foster greater joy and spirits for the holidays”, says Natalie Broussard.The project has commitments from various elected officials. The program requires that each official agrees to pay for the holiday displays themselves, using no public funds. The project is the brainstorm of the Better Days On the Bayou group. The organization was formed after a group of friends decided to look for ways to better the future of Iberia Parish through small and obtainable goals. The mantra, “Better Days On the Bayou” was adopted from Broussard’s 2019 Campaign for her second term on the Iberia Parish Council. Broussard explained it as what she envisioned coming as a result of elected officials and the community putting in the work to create a brighter future for all those in Iberia.
