Former governor and current congressional candidate Edwin Edwards will headline next Thursday's St. Martinville Chamber of Commerce Banquet.
Edwards is currently seeking a return to Washington, D. C., running for the Sixth Congressional District seat currently held by Senate candidate Bill Cassidy. Edwards, who served four terms as governor, previously represented the now-defunct Seventh Congressional District from 1965 until 1972.
The banquet will take place at the Woodman of the World Center on 40 Arpents Road in St. Martinville. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the program begins at 7 p.m.
Individual tickets for the banquet are on sale for $50 each. Tables are available for $450. A meal will be served.
