Copeland Statue in Lafreniere Park Delayed

A spokesperson for the Copeland family says construction of an Al Copeland statue in Lafreniere Park will be delayed.

The parish council is adjusting the construction schedule for the project.  Friday, the parish will break ground on the music stage portion.

Work on Copeland’s statue and the garden incorporated with it will come at a later date.

Parish leaders are expected to release more details Friday at 11:00 am during the project’s official groundbreaking.
