PREMISES Landlord hereby lets and leases to Tenant and Tenant hereby rents and leases from Landlord a certain municipal lot located at 307 Hudson Lane, Monroe, Louisiana, hereinafter referred to as "the Leased Premises", or, in some cases, as simply "the Premises"), and which lot is more particularly described as follows:

A certain lot or parcel of ground in Square Number Three (3) of Hudson's Addition (Home Addition) to the City of Monroe, Louisiana; said lot beginning on the north side of Hudson Avenue seventy-five feet (75') from the intersection of the north line of Hudson Avenue with the east line of North Third Street, fronting thence along Hudson Avenue in an easterly direction a distance of seventy-five feet (75'), and running back in said Square or Block Number Three (3) between parallel lines a distance of one hundred sixty feet (160'), and being the same property acquired by from David Masur by cash deed recorded in Conveyance Book 895, page 432, records of Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. 2. DATE AND TERM OF LEASE The date of this Lease shall be the date first hereinabove set forth, and the initial, or Base, term shall be for five (5) consecutive calendar years, commencing July 1, 2013, and ending June 30,2018. The anniversary date of the Lease shall be July 1St. 3. RENT Rent for the Premises during the term of this Lease shall be THIRTY THOUSAND AND N0/100 DOLLARS ($30,000.00), divided into sixty (60) equal payments of FIVE HUNDRED AND N0/100 DOLLARS ($500.00) each, payable in advance in cash or by cashiers check on the first day of each calendar month. Rent shall be payable at 230 Auburn Avenue, Monroe, Louisiana 71201 unless notification to the contrary in writing is made to Tenant, and then rent shall be payable at the substitute address. If any monthly rental payment is not made by the first day of the month in which it is due, the unpaid portion of the same shall bear interest at the rate of TEN PERCENT (10%) per annum from date due until paid in full. All persons collectively making up "Tenant" as defined in this Lease shall be jointly and severally liable in solido for all obligations of Tenant hereunder, and shall be liable individually and in solido for the rent due hereunder, including any interest or penalties on the unpaid balance, reasonable attorney fees and costs of collecting any and all unpaid rent hereunder.

It is the express intent of and stipulated by the parties that nothing contained herein shall be construed to relieve Tenant of the obligation of payment of rent, and any material breach by Tenant of any of the covenants or conditions of this Lease shall have the effect, at Landlord's sole option, of immediately terminating the Lease, and the further effect of accelerating the remaining, unpaid rental payments hereunder, and they shall become immediately due and payable in their entirety. Failure to pay rent timely shall constitute a material breach of this agreement. Any tacit or express waiver of this provision by Landlord for any rent payment or payments due hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of the application of this provision to other and further rent payments. 4. USE OF THE PREMISES Tenant may use the Premises solely for a parking lot, but may use the same for any lawful purpose not inconsistent with the current zoning ordinance of the City of Monroe.

MODIFICATIONS Other than those hereinafter described, Tenant shall make no alterations, modifications or improvements to the Premises without prior written consent of Landlord.

9. TERMINATION Should Tenant violate any conditions of this lease, it may be immediately terminated at the option of Landlord and, if terminated without election by Landlord of Landlord's option to accelerate rent, it is stipulated that Tenant shall pay Landlord six (6) months rent as liquidated damages as compensation to Landlord for the inconvenience of having to find another tenant. Notice of termination may be delivered by Landlord to Tenant at the last known mailing address of Tenant as given to Landlord, or may be affixed to the front of the Premises. Notice is complete upon mailing or affixation to the Premises. Tenant waives all statutory notice periods for eviction. This lease shall also be terminated, at the option of Landlord, on the death, commencement of a proceeding, voluntary or involuntary, in receivership, insolvency or bankruptcy or the for determination of the mental, legal or other incompetency of the person or persons defined herein as Tenant, or any of them, and Landlord's decision shall be effective retroactive to the date of the terminating event, or upon the felony conviction of Tenant, or any of them. On termination of this lease, Tenant is obligated to immediately surrender possession, and should Tenant fail to do so, Tenant consents to pay, as liquidated damages, five times the rent per day, together with attorney's fees and costs necessary for Landlord to retake possession, such liquidated damages to continue until Tenant either voluntarily vacates the Premises after written notice to Landlord, or until Tenant is forcibly evicted therefrom. Tenant also expressly waives any notice to vacate at the termination of this Lease and all legal delays, and hereby confesses judgment with costs, placing Landlord in possession to be executed at once. Should Landlord suffer Tenant to remain in possession of the premises after termination of this lease, Landlord's acquiescence shall not be construed as a reconduction of the lease.

N .

Should Tenant violate any material condition of this lease, such as nonpayment of rent, Landlord may, at his option, accelerate all payments due hereunder. Notice of acceleration may be delivered to Tenant at Tenant's last known address or posted at the Premises. In the event of non-renewal of this lease by either party for the base or any renewal term, Landlord reserves the right to post and keep posted on the property "For Rent" signs during a sixty (60) day period immediately preceding the expiration of the lease base or any renewal term, whichever is appropriate in the circumstances. This Agreement may be terminated by either party if the Premises is so damaged by force inajeure, casualty or exercise of the power of eminent domain as to render more than one-third (1/3) of it not habitable for purposes of this Lease. Any such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after written notice of intent to terminate pursuant to this provision is received by the nonterminating party from the terminating party. 10. USE OF PREMISES BEFORE TERM COMMENCES The parties agree that Tenant shall have access to and the use of the Premises from the date of this lease until the date of commencement hereunder, but Tenant's right to possession shall terminate immediately at 5 P.M. on the day of commencement of the lease term without further notice unless the first month's rent payment shall have been received by Landlord. If modifications are made to the Premises under any side agreement as to such modifications, Tenant shall promptly yield possession for purposes of construction, whether during the lease term or prior thereto. 11. SUBORDINATION AND ATTORNMENT Landlord reserves the right to place liens and encumbrances on the Premises superior in lien and effect to this Lease. This Lease, at the option of Landlord, shall be subject and subordinate to any liens or encumbrances now or hereafter imposed by Landlord upon the Premises, and Tenant agrees to execute and deliver, upon demand, such instruments subordinating this Lease to any such lien or encumbrance as shall be required by Landlord. 7

In the event any proceedings are brought for the foreclosure of any mortgage on the Leased Premises, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser at foreclosure sale and recognize the purchaser as the
Landlord under this Lease. The purchaser, by virtue of such foreclosure, shall be deemed to have

assumed, as substitute Landlord, the terms and conditions of this Lease until the resale or other disposition of its interest by such purchaser. Such assumption, however, shall not be deemed of itself an acknowledgment by the purchaser of the validity of any then existing claims of Tenant against the prior Landlord. The purchaser shall have no liability to repay Tenant any security deposit paid to any prior Landlord, but Tenant shall not be obligated to make any further security deposit toward the last month's rent due such purchaser under this Lease. Tenant agrees to execute and deliver such other and further assurances and other documents (including a new lease on the same terms and conditions as this Lease) confirming the foregoing as such purchaser may reasonably request. Tenant waives any rights of election to terminate this Lease because of such foreclosure proceedings. 12. ASSIGNMENTS Tenant shall not have the right to assign or sublet in whole or part any portion of the Leased Premises without prior written consent of Landlord. If Landlord consents to assignment, it is a material condition of this lease that the assignment made between Tenant and any subtenant shall require the subtenant to agree to abide by all terms and conditions of this lease, and that Tenant is not released from any obligation hereunder. Landlord may sell, transfer or assign all or any part of its interest in the Leased Premises or this Lease at any time without consent of Tenant. 13. NOTICE Notice hereunder shall be in writing to the other party at the mailing address set forth on the first page of this Agreement, or at such substitute address as may from time to time be given by notice in writing by any party to the other parties during the pendency of this Agreement. Notice

to Tenant may be made at the Premises by affixing a copy of the same to any convenient structure on the premises, natural or manmade. Notice by mail shall be complete upon receipt, and may be evidenced by receipt for certified mail. 14. INTEGRATION This Agreement constitutes the whole agreement between the parties with regard to the subject matter contained herein. All other agreements which were or may have been made, whether orally or in writing, prior to this Agreement on this subject are declared to be null and of no effect. 15. INTERPRETATION AND MODIFICATION This Agreement shall be construed liberally to give effect to its primary objective and the intent of the parties. Any word or phrase which is subject to more than one reasonable interpretation, whether or not prompted by context, shall first be accorded its definition hereunder as a defined term, and, failing that, any special legal definition as set forth by the law of the State of Louisiana or, in the absence thereof, by customary usage in the industry and of the place. If none of these apply, it shall be given its ordinary, or plain usage, meaning. No modification of this Agreement shall be made except in writing and signed by the parties. 16. BINDING EFFECT If any part of this Agreement is found to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, it is the express intent of the parties hereto that such invalidity shall not act to invalidate the remaining provisions of this Agreement. This Agreement shall be binding on Tenant and Tenant's heirs, successors, agents, employees and assigns to the extent permitted by law, and wherever the term "Tenant" appears in this Agreement, and the context permits, it is agreed by the parties that it shall be construed as meaning "Tenant and Tenant's heirs, successors, agents, employees and assigns" as if therein written out in full.

This Agreement shall be binding on Landlord and Landlord's successors, agents, employees and assigns to the extent permitted by law, and wherever the term "Landlord" appears in this Agreement, and the context permits, it is agreed by the parties that it shall be construed as meaning "Landlord and Landlord's successors, agents, employees and assigns" as if therein written out in full. In the event the term "Tenant" is defined in this lease to include more than one person, they agree that they are bound in solido and jointly and severally by the provisions of this Agreement. 17. EXTENSIONS OF TERM This lease shall automatically renew at the end of its base term and any renewal term for an additional five (5) year term on the same terms and conditions, except that the rent shall be FORTYFIVE THOUSAND AND N0/100 DOLLARS ($45,000.00), payable in monthly installments of SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY ($750.00) on the first day of each month, the other terms and conditions of the Lease to remain the same, unless either party has given the other party notice of intent not to renew at least sixty (60) calendar days prior to the expiration of the term during which such notice is given. These automatic renewals shall continue until the lease is terminated. 18. COUNTERPART ORIGINALS This Lease shall be executed in two counterpart copies, each of which shall be deemed an original, one of which shall be delivered to Tenant, and the other to Landlord. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have hereunto set their hands before us, notaries, and the undersigned competent witnesses at my offices in Monroe, Louisiana on the date first shown.
