Thomas and Lundy family recognized in D’Iberville

One of the oldest Creole families in the area reunited this weekend for some family fun.

The Thomas and Lundy families gathered in D’Iberville this weekend and family members of all ages enjoyed good food, music, and each other’s company.

At 84-years-old family member Eretta Jenkins was crowned ‘Miss Creole’ and the City of Biloxi issued a proclamation celebrating the family’s history. “Well, it’s an honor given to us through our family and I’m the only one that’s left to pass it on to the younger generation that they don’t know that they are Creoles.”

Events for the family reunion began on Friday and ended Sunday.
