Erin Elizabeth Duhe, Miss Andouille 2014, represented St. John Parish at the Plaquemimes Parish Fair and Orange Festival recently at Historic Fort Jackson in Buras.

Visiting queens picked satsumas and navel oranges, had a kumquat stuffing contest, shot a civil war cannon and had lots of fun.

“I learned Louisiana history in middle school via textbook, but this year traveling as Miss Andouille is a year-long Louisiana history lesson learned first hand,” Duhe said. “I am looking forward to showing off St. John Parish to my fellow queens in October.”

Since becoming Miss Andouille in October, Duhe has traveled to Belle Chasse, Buras, Bridge City, Colfax, Norco and Lutcher.

On Dec. 11, Duhe and Riley Edwards, Teen Andouille 2014, attended the annual Southeast Louisiana War Veterans Home Christmas Party.

They handed out cheer and candy canes to residents and visitors.

In addition, Duhe gave a gift of 10 jigsaw puzzles and a Christmas card for the residents to enjoy.
