St. John Parish Clover Talk April 2011


Throughout the month of April and leading up to Achievement Day in May 2011, we will be collecting items to make care packages to send to American soldiers in Afghanistan. Items that can be sent are listed on the attached flyer.

Let’s show our support for the men and women currently serving our country. Letters will be written to place in each care package.


Pups-in-the-Park was held March 26, 2011, and was a huge success. 4-H partnered with the Rotary Club of Laplace to host Pups-in-the-Park. More than 30 participants and their pets enjoyed the fun activities in the park. A booth was set up for making dog toys to donate to the animal shelter. Participants also donated a $1 to the Junior Leader program. We look forward to hosting this event next year.
