Senior citizens from across St. James Parish came together on Oct. 27 to see who would win the gumbo cook-off.

At the annaul St. James Parish Senior Citizens Gumbo Cook-Off, four senior centers competed to see who would win the title.

Romeville, Lutcher, Vacherie and Welcome all competed in the cook-off at a party for the senior citizens throughout the parish.
