“We wanted to give the public a taste of Natchitoches,” said NYP member Samantha Bonnette. “I think it will be a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon.”
The Natchitoches Young Professionals is an initiative of the Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce.
“The NYP has shown a commitment from that age group in our community to get together and work together to make our community a better place,” said Chamber President Tony Davis. “This event is a great example of NYP identifying a type of event that is not held locally and working together to offer that to the public. Their perspective allows for the creation of new events that appeal to that age group like the pub crawl and movie night.”
