Lloyd "Wimpy" Seringe

Board President
Los Islenos Cultural and Heritage Society

“As far as a swimming pool was concerned, we didn’t need that. We had the bayou.”

Mr Wimpy grew up on Delacroix Island, a place he calls “a paradise.” He loves to fish and is a dedicated servant to the cultural preservation of the Isleños people. He no longer lives on Delacroix, as much of it has washed away. Wimpy is a living example of what will disappear forever if we don’t address the current plight of the land.
