Seniors Saluted with
Crawfish Boil

A springtime tradition returned to the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine with the Ninth Annual Crawfish Boil held April 2, 2009. The annual event was sponsored by Hill’s Pet Foods to honor the fourth-year students being graduated from the CVM.

Dr. Charles Thibodeaux, master Cajun chef, boiled enough mudbugs to feed the faculty, staff and students at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory. Fried catfish, lobster bisque, smoked sausage, potatoes, etouffee and corn on the cob rounded out the Cajun feast.

Diners lined up to be served a Cajun feast that included lobster bisque, etouffee
and catfish, in addition to all the crawfish they could eat.

Retired Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital Administrator Ron Haffey
returned to enjoy the annual meal he helped coordinate for many years.

Volunteers from the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and the
Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory helped make the annual
crawfish boil a success. VMDL Manager of Business and
Fiscal Operations Mike Wimmenauer dished up a mixture of smoked
sausage and corn on the cob.

Dr. Jim Creed, former Veterinary Medicine and Surgery
Department Chairman, was responsible for bringing the
annual Hill’s Crawfish Boil to the CVM. He also prepared
and fried the catfish that was served.
