December 2016Lafitte Auditorium Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Meyer Engineers, Ltd., was honored to join the Town of Lafitte and Mayor Tim Kerner at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Lafitte Auditorium. The 18,000 square foot building, designed by Meyer, features a main assembly hall, a full service kitchen, two full bars, a bridal suite for a bride and her attendants, and a performance stage for bands and community plays. It incorporates state-of-the-art, energy conscious lighting and air conditioning systems. Funding for the building came from several sources, all gathered together by Mayor Tim Kerner.

The ribbon cutting was bitter-sweet for Kerner. This new auditorium replaces an original auditorium, built during the term of Tim Kerner's father, the late Mayor Leo Kerner. Hurricane Ike’s flood waters destroyed the original auditorium in 2008. “My daddy’s building may be gone, but he would have been really proud of this new, modern version of what he and the men of this town built; he would have approved,” Kerner said.

On hand to help the mayor cut the ribbon were the entire Lafitte Town Council, members of the Jefferson Parish Council, and hundreds of the citizens of Lafitte.
