The past, present and future of a community are its people. That is why at Plaquemine Bank we don't just serve our community, we represent our community.

Our employees live in and around Plaquemine. We attend Plaquemine churches. Our children attend Plaquemine schools, just as we did when we were children. We contribute our time to local organizations such as the Iberville Parish Relay for Life, March for Babies, Autism Walk for Hope, The Iberville Chamber of Commerce, The Knights of Columbus, Kiwanis, and Jaycees to ensure that Plaquemine will grow and become richer. We sponsor Reading is Fundamental and local art shows to encourage independent education and artistic expression in this, our neighborhood. Our employees number among the members of every local church, their choirs, the Plaquemine Garden Club and even important positions within our local education system. These activities are part of the life of our community and are therefore fundamental to the life of Plaquemine Bank.

International Acadian Festival

The International Acadian Festival was founded in 1969 by Gary Hebert and sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council #970. At that time, Mr. Hebert held the office of Grand Knight of Council #970. The festival is held every year in October to commemorate the arrival of the Acadians in Louisiana, and to re-enact the arrival of Evangeline on the waters of historic Bayou Plaquemine. The legend of Evangeline states that she traveled by bateau on the waters of the bayou to find her soul mate and fiance', Gabriel, with whom she had been separated. This re-enactment takes place immediately following sundown in the bayou at the Plaquemine Locks. The waterway is illuminated with torches so that Evangeline can be seen as she is steered along the bayou, searching for her one true love, Gabriel. In addition to this beautiful re-enactment, the Festival also has a large parade, which rolls through the historic district of Plaquemine and a three day carnival complete with rides, amusements, live music entertainment, and good old-fashioned Cajun Cuisine.
