Visitor Enterprise Funds have been released to DeSoto Parish following a request

made by the DeSoto Parish Tourist Bureau which Representative Larry Bagley, member of the House Appropriations Committee in the State Legislature and Logansport resident, was able to successfully fulfill. These funds are a rebate to the parish from the 4-cent sales tax paid by guests on overnight accommodations. By legislation, Visitor Enterprise Funds for DeSoto Parish are divided between the DeSoto Parish Tourist Bureau, the DeSoto Parish Chamber of Commerce, and the Logansport Chamber of Commerce. These three organizations have received periodic releases since the fund’s inception in 1997-98.

On June 18, family and friends gathered in Gloster to celebrate the 99th Birthday of Emma Mae Allen. Her husband was the late Robert Allen, and they made their home in Grand Cane. Of this union, 8 children were born, including Ella Banks, Luther Allen, Bobbie Allen Edward, Emma Brooks, Irene Johnson, James Robert Allen, Rosie Blow and Rubbie Smith. Those eight children in turn blessed “Momma” with 22 grandchildren, 54 greatgrandchildren, and 30 great, great-grandchildren.

“Momma’s” actual date of birth is June 18, 1920, so the party was a couple of days early. The celebration included food and fellowship, with a beautiful birthday cake baked especially for Emma Mae. Lots of family stories and memories were shared making the celebration complete.
