One of our parish 4-H school club leaders was selected as a State 4-H Alumni Winner. This award is based on their 4-H accomplishments as a youth member and their contributions and accomplishments with their 4-H clubs as a 4-H volunteer. Winners are recognized at a banquet held at 4- H University on the LSU Campus.
Parish 4-H youth contributed 5310 pounds of food to the Miss-Lou through their participation in the State 4-H CAN Fight Hunger Campaign. Food was given to individual families, local churches, and local Food Banks. 4-H youth from one of the clubs donated time to help serve food at the Stew Pot during the holidays.
Fifty 4-H youth, junior leaders, adult volunteers and 4-H agent participated in the 2011 4-H Camp held at the Grant Walker Educational Center in Pollock, La.
