Welcome to Grand Isle, Louisiana
In the spring of 2005, a group of Grand Isle camp owners and fishing friends met to discuss organizing a group focused on the Jewel of the Louisiana Gulf Coast, Grand Isle. Then the hurricanes spawned their wrath on coastal Louisiana, and our jewel was severely impacted. Another meeting was called regarding the status of the island.
An overwhelming surge of emotions and a willingness to help surfaced. Friends of Grand Isle Inc. was born as a non profit organization, officers were elected, and people went to work with the purpose of assisting residents and businesses on the island.
