On Saturday, H.J. Bosworth Jr, senior member of and Roy Arrigo, advisor to the group and other volunteers will install the post which will soon support a Louisiana State Historic Plaque.

Approved by the state of Louisiana on April 11, the Plaque will be positioned near ground zero of the London Avenue Canal breach site (east side) in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans.

The site was chosen with input from neighborhood leaders and residents. The City of New Orleans Parks and Parkways Department has approved the site on the neutral ground of Mirabeau Avenue at Warrington Drive and marked it with a little purple flag.

The Plaque itself is currently being manufactured and will ship on May 9.

Plans for an Unveiling Ceremony are underway which will take place in mid May.
