Southeast Texas Cajun Seniors Prepare for Gumbo Fest 2014


Southeast Texas is Cajun Country. Go into an SETX office or home and you’ll see almost as many LSU emblems as UT and A&M combined.

Every now and then I hear of an elderly Southeast Texan who is in the hospital and completely forgets English, communicating only in the Cajun French of their youth.

One of the beloved Southeast Texas events for our Cajun seniors is Beaumont Gumbo Fest.

Gumbo Fest benefits the Anayat House which is Beaumont’s Medical Hospitality House.

Southeast Texas Families come from long distances to Beaumont for medical treatments, which can be awfully expensive – as you know.

When a hotel room just isn’t in the budget, many Southeast Texans stay at the Anayat House.

This year the Anayat House Beaumont will move into a brand new home which will allow them to serve a record number of Southeast Texans.
