BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Consider it the meeting of one of Louisiana's most exclusive clubs. The state's governors are gathering together this weekend at the house where each once lived.

Gov. John Bel Edwards and first lady Donna Edwards are hosting Louisiana's former chief executives at the governor's mansion Sunday afternoon for a reception called "Memories at the Mansion."

Edwards' office said all four living former governors have confirmed they plan to attend: Edwin Edwards, Buddy Roemer, Kathleen Blanco and Bobby Jindal. Each also could invite a few former cabinet members and staff.

John Bel Edwards' spokesman Richard Carbo said Friday Donna Edwards planned the reception as part of her relaunch of the governor's mansion preservation foundation. She's asked the ex-governors to bring memorabilia from their time in office to display in the mansion.
