Jane Fontenot Vidrine is pictured here under the pavilion located adjacent to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Chapel in Belaire Cove. The pavilion, along with other projects at the chapel, was funded by proceeds from the Belaire Cove Crawfish Etoufee Cookoff that was held for 25 years on the chapel grounds.

When the first French settlers came to what is now called Evangeline Parish, many of them came to live in different areas across the vast prairie.
