The Ascension Parish 4-H Junior Leaders attended LSU’s Candlelight Celebration, Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, and Holiday Party on November 27th
, 2012. The Junior Leaders enjoyed performances by the LSU dancers, a violin duet, a performance of The Nutcracker, The LSU Gospel Choir, and many others. The Christmas tree lighting ceremony was a particular highlight of the evening as the Junior Leaders got the privilege of meeting a local celebrity, Pat Shingleton! Lastly, they attended the Holiday party where they gave toys to the Toys for Tots program, led by the U.S. Marine Corps. The Junior Leaders not only gave toys, but also canned foods to the Food Bank and coats to Pat’s Coats for Kids. They are really looking forward to their December meeting where they will be shopping for Christmas presents for a family in need. Great job Junior Leaders for contributing to the community and helping those in need!
