Sidney Triche to be honored for 55 years of auctioning

On Thursday, August 6th, a Roast & Toast banquet will be held at the Larose Civic Center to honor Sidney Triche. The supper, provided by Chef Bob Faulk, begins at 7:00 with a VIP Meet & Greet at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the Larose Civic Center.

One of the most civic-minded and successful businessmen in the South Lafourche community, Sidney Triche’s volunteer help at auctioning has raise millions of dollars for various charities, churches, and causes locally from Lockport to Grand Isle.

He started auctioning in 1960. Thousands of local residents, businesses and civic organizations have benefited from Sidney’s auctioning skills. Some of the groups who have profited from his presence on the auction platform has been:

Holy Rosary School Fair, French Food Festival, Wild Game Supper, Oyster Festival, Cajun Festival, American Legion, Cut Off Youth Center, Ducks Unlimited, Safari Club, Lockport Fair, Mount Zion and Bull Club Fair.

Sidney has not limited his community activity to auctioning. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Lafourche Parish Water District No. 1 for 44 years, and President of the Board since 1994. A major accomplishment during his tenure was bringing water to Port Fourchon in 1975 and again in 1995 increasing the daily volume that has enabled the Port to grow and prospect.

Elected to the Lafourche Parish School Board from 1962 to 1968 Sidney was very involved in the consolidation of schools in 1965.

Sidney married Annette Guidry Triche in 1957 and together have four daughters, seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

For more than 60 years Sidney has shown a life long commitment to the people of South Lafourche through his civic and philanthropic endeavors. His recognition is long overdue.
