Elder of the Month - Ms. Mary Russell

  • Ashé Cultural Arts Center 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. New Orleans, LA 70113 USA (map)


"First of all, Thank You Lord for waking us up this blessed day.  I love Ashé.  When I first did exercise and plays we went to Ashé at Oretha Castle Haley.  We did plays at the studio and we got videos after each performance.  Ashé workers are very nice people you can get along with.  They are very powerful people.  We are thankful that God put them in our lives.  We are thankful for what they have taught us.  What the Ashé workers have taught us we can take home and show our grandchildren.  We are very thankful."
