  • Recover from the pandemic and keep the museum open daily to serve as a prime destination for tourism in South Louisiana (planned reopening June 25, 2021).
  • Sponsor and financially support a newly-formed organization called Les Amis du Français en Vermilion.
  • Preserve and display artifacts donated by the American Legion Derouen-Moss Post 279 and help celebrate the 75th anniversary of the organization (August 28, 2021) by opening a new exhibit on its history.
  • Represent our region at the Congres mondial acadien and the Grand Reveille Acadien.
  • Help Dr. Jason Theriot transcribe interviews for his upcoming book, Frenchie: The Story of the French-Speaking Cajuns in WWII (UL Press).
  • Digitize our videotapes of rare and valuable interviews with cultural icons and create our very own YouTube TV Channel.
  • Support archeological efforts to find remnants of the first Acadian settlement in Louisiana.
