Several of the Jeep clubs got together over the weekend to host "Lunch For Oklahoma"  for victims of the recent storms in Oklahoma.

Cajun Jeepers, Louisiana Jeepers, Bon Temps Jeeps  and Jeeps Unlimited of Louisiana met early Saturday morning at Celebrity Theatres in Broussard, and started cooking!

Customers started showing up even before the "gates" were open, and hundreds of plate lunches were sold!  Some people drove through, not wanting lunch, just wanting to donate!!

Members of the Jeep clubs made signs and stood at intersections near Celebrity Theatres, letting people know about the event.  Again, many people at those intersections just wanted to donate!

Thanks to all who came out to buy lunch/donate, more than $3,700  was raised for the victims of the recent storms in Oklahoma.

I'm proud to be a part of these Jeep clubs, and I am proud to live in Acadiana; at the drop of a hat, people here are ready to help, to give back.    Next time you meet up with a Jeep on the road, give 'em a little wave, and say "Thank you!"....
