Giving a Voice to Carencro, Upper Lafayette, Scott, & St. Landry Parish

Community Chronicles Welcomes You!


Hello and thank you for taking a moment to read the Community Chronicles. Since February of 2011, the Community Chronicles writers have had the best time writing the most incredible stories from the Carencro, North Lafayette, Sunset, and Grand Coteau area. In August of 2013, we also began covering the city of Scott. My goal as editor is to make sure that the news occurring in these areas is shared so that others can rejoice in the growth of our community. This publication is not limited to just news events. Our writers are looking to tell stories on everyday people. The person who stars in this type of article could be your parents, grandparents, children or the teacher in their school, etc. Everyone has a story! I hope to tell yours one day soon in the Community Chronicles.
