Rotarian of the Day - Jay Tipton


Jay Tipton is the Executive Director of The Suites at Sugar Mill Point. He joined our club this past April at the invitation of Brunnie Bisland.


Jay is a native of Houma having graduated from Vandebilt Catholic High and Nicholls State University with a BS in Marketing.  He and his wife Karla are the proud parents of three children: Taylor, Sam, and welcomed Madelyn Rose this past April.  


Jay has always enjoyed being part of an organization that serves others.  He feels that the Rotary Club of Houma offers this opportunity along with introducing other components that benefit our local community.


Guest Speaker - Sue Peace - Le Petit Theatre


Sue Peace wears many hats that contribute to our local community.  One of her biggest contributions was her leadership as Executive Director of The First United Methodist Church Early Learning Center.  From 1987 to 2018, Sue developed and implemented programs catering to child development making the FUMC Early Learning Center the successful teaching institution it is today. 


Now retired, Sue is still donating her time and talents by entertaining both adults and children through storytelling and theatrical performance to locals. Le Petite is just one of the avenues where Sue has left an impression having been very involved in Terrebonne Parish local arts. 




Pickle Ball Fundraiser!

We are raising money to buy CBB Elementary a pickleball set for Christmas. The envelope will be passed around one more time at today's meeting.



Christmas Party

Thursday, December 6 6:30pm at Dalton Leblanc's house, 405 Oak Alley.
