Eleven Jefferson Parish 4-H members and eight volunteer leaders visited the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge earlier this summer for “4-H Day at the Capitol”, joining hundreds of 4-H members, 4-H volunteers and parents from throughout the state. While at the State Capitol, members of the Jefferson Delegation visited with Senator Conrad Appel, Representative Robert Billiot, Representative Joseph Lopinto, and Representative Tony Ligi. Members of the Jefferson group were able to sit in on a committee hearing with Representative Billiot. Participants were also able to visit the Louisiana State Museum in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the state of Louisiana.
