Staff Wins Eastern National Sales Contest
From May-July, Cane River Creole's Eastern National Sales outlet saw a 93% increase in passport book sales. That increase was enough for Cane River to win the Region 7 passport sales contest. The park staff was treated to a pizza party from regional manager, Becky Burke. The park's sales are up 66%, and apparently a portion of that increase is from passport sales. Congratulations to the crew at Cane River!

Today a few of the direct descendants of Oakland's enslaved (such as Marvin Toussaint, great-great grandson of Minique Toussaint, an Oakland fiddler and carpenter) now actively participate in local historic preservation of African American institutions.
