Speaker-

Apartments will range between 750-1290 sq feet and will be priced similar to those at Towne Center Apartments. They will be located on the corner of Pleasant Hill Rd and Deer Hill Rd. These apartments will be a great addition to Lafayette and also allow those working in Lafayette to also be able to live here.

Remember: Save the greenbacks!

The doctor is in

Hours after a massive earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010, Claude Surena, a physician, turned his home into a makeshift triage center, sheltering more than 100 injured people.  

Using the limited supplies of medicine and food that Rotarians had managed to collect, Surena, his wife, and other volunteers cared for victims, many of whom were in critical condition. The capital city of Port-au-Prince was damaged extensively, making communication almost impossible and resources scarce. 

“It was difficult to witness so many people suffering and not have the capacity to give them the help they needed,” says Surena, president of the Haitian Medical Association. “I wanted to give as many people as I could some level of comfort.”
