Realtor and Friend for Life

by Blake Hanna

I've always enjoyed making new friends anywhere, anytime. Whether it was through my musical endeavors, school, or in random places, I've always liked meeting new people and learning about them. Being in the Real Estate business has given me the unique opportunity of meeting new people all the time as well as helping them with one of the most important decisions of their lives. Throughout the process you get to know your clients and learn all about them and they get to learn about you. No client I work with is just another "deal." The look they have when they get the keys to their home is a great reward. Through staying in touch, I've hung out with, attended events, played on sports teams and even been invited to weddings of my past clients. Not only do I strive to be their Realtor for life, but also their friend.

Burden Rural Life Harvest Festival

by Pat Wattam

Fall in Baton Rouge brings a bunch of festivals - and one of the most fun ones where you can step back in time is the Fall Harvest Festival at the Burden Rural Life Museum off Essen Lane.  People stroll the grounds in period costumes, play historic games, re-enactors demostrate a civil war battle, and there's music and people showing how things were done in the good old days!  This is a great place to bring the whole family - have fun and receive a little education too!

If you have other fun things you like to do in Baton Rouge, add you events to

Enjoy a fun filled day at the Rural Life Museum at the Burden Center on Essen Lane while they celebrate Harvest Day!   From 9 am - 5 p.m. at 4650 Essen Lane.

The educational event interprets life in the 19th century rural Louisiana during the fall harvest.  Some of the activities will be living history demonstrations inlcuding plowing, syrup making, blacksmithing, soap and candle making, and open hearth cooking.  Visitors are allowed to participate in many of these activities!

And, as in an Louisiana event, food available for purchase!

There is also a Civil War re-enactment of the Battle of Baton Rouge today, Sunday, Sept 29, 2013 at 1 p.m. 

See you there!
