             “I volunteer for many organizations but French Quarter Fest is the best!  It showcases our music, food, French Quarter and for me the Mississippi River!  I have met many great and generous volunteers over the years.  Even though we don’t see each other during the year, our friendship picks up just where it left off just like all good friendships do!  As usual you receive much more than you give when you volunteer in this great city!”
