This town is so rich in history and unique local flavor, the citizens are hard-working and independent people.

I was born in Bayou LaBatre and lived there first few years of my life. I am seeking family information. Is anyone from there that might have been or either had family that was there about 45-48 ago? Anyone familiar with a medical clinic called "Dr. McGraw's Clinic"? Anyone familiar with Rainbow Drive? I would appreciate anything that anyone could tell me about any of this. See More

I hope everyone starts to get involved in bringing our town back. Does anyone remember how the Fleet Blessing, Fishing Rodeo, and parades was, I do. There is a sunk boat at the City docks, why haven't... they called someone to remove it, I'm sure there is someone out there who be more then glad to salvage it for the money. If boat owner doesn't remove it fine them. But it needs to be remove. Please Bring Our Town Back. Let's all go to the meeting. Do you remember when Mr Gussey was mayor and had the gas station, you could talk to him while he pumped your gas, or you mite have been there to buy something to go fishing. People in our town don't associate like they used to. We even use to have great dances, because my daddy would take mama. We all need to come back down to earth and remember don't make everything about money. Grand Bay looks better then us. Peace See More

Several City of Bayou La Batre employees took on the ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Ice Bucket Challenge in honor of Linda Straub Ladnier, a true community leader who courageously battled this disease. Linda left a lasting impression on many things within South Mobile County. Donations have been made in memory of Linda at Left to right; Sandy with the Public Works Department challenged Public Works Manager Jimmy; Wanda who is Mayor Dungan's Assistant at City Hall challenged Chief Wiggins with the Bayou La Batre Fire Department; Corrine Busby with Bayou La Batre Magistrate's Office challenged the entire Bayou La Batre Police Department; and Brandi Herrington, Director at the Bayou La Batre Community Center challenged the entire Bayou La Batre Fire Department. A big "thank you" to Bayou La Batre Fire Department for "helping" us get wet and especially Rusty who managed to get himself soaked too. #ALSicebucketchallenge #icebucketchallenge #strikeoutALS

Nees from Bayou La Batre Senior Center

The Bayou La Batre Senior Center will NOT be serving meals tomorrow due to the risk of dangerous road conditions that would have to be navigated by our food delivery service contractor. As of this writing, I am not comfortable with the expectations of roadways tomorrow morning for our staff to be on the roads locally in the Senior Bus. With that in mind, the transportation bus WILL NOT run for pick-up tomorrow.
The Bayou La Batre Commu...nity Center will resume normal operating hours tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Our staff welcomes any of our Seniors to join us for a day of fellowship and warmth however please pay close attention to the local news stations for any notice of road closures. Our Seniors are welcome to bring in food of their own choosing and be able to use our microwaves to warm meals. If weather conditions are agreeable, we may venture out to a local restaurant for lunch. This would not be a planned event, lunch cost will be on each participant.
Stay warm tonight, keep watching the local weather reports and take caution when making plans if you indeed choose to venture out tomorrow.
