There is a new sign at the entrance to the West Calcasieu Port. Port Director Lynn Hohensee, along with port board members, local officials and other dignitaries, unveiled that sign on Sept. 3.
“The port is very proud to have this sign. We have never had one at the entrance to our port,” said Hohensee. “It is practical and symbolic for us because the sign recognizes the growth we have experienced over the last four or five years at the West Calcasieu Port, and it has a practical application for the visitors who come into our port.”
Port board president Dick Kennison stated that the sign demonstrated to people that “there are a lot of things going on out here,” and that the port is “a viable economic entity in this area.”
Mayor Chris Duncan agreed that the sign will increase the port’s visibility.
“This will not only help the port but all of southwest Louisiana. It will assist in the marketing of the entire area,” said the mayor, who also praised Hohensee’s work with the port.
