Parish workers, Sheriff’s Office get into Saints spirit

Parish workers Calli Madere, Kathy Ayme, Nicole Campbell, Robbie Wilson, Monica Williams and Shelia Hymel are ready for the Super Bowl. For the last two weeks, office workers at the courthouse have been able to wear Saints gear.

Fans all across the parish are busy getting their Who Dat on, and the courthouse is no exception.

For the past two weeks, some office workers at the courthouse have been wearing their Saints gear everyday as they await Sunday’s Super Bowl. Only office workers have been able to wear the Saints gear, but most are allowed to decorate their office spaces.

“I don’t think there’s a rule against decorating around here so we do have some signs on doors, stuff like that,” Parish spokeswoman Renee Simpson said.

Parish President V.J. St. Pierre and Executive Secretary Anedra Coleman came up with the idea to allow office personnel to show their spirit for an entire two weeks.

The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office is also getting into the spirit, and Sheriff Greg Champagne will have a tailgate  party behind the courthouse on Feb. 5.

Champagne has invited everyone in his office and other courthouse employees to have lunch in what will be a Saints dress down day for all.

“We have asked local chef/barbecue guy Tommy Corley to provide a barbecue chicken lunch for $9 a plate,” Champagne said. “This is just something we came up with to support the Saints along with a little get together.”

Champagne’s employees will be allowed to have lunch in shifts so that the offices are kept running. The event will begin at noon.
