WANNA MUCK?

 The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is urging anyone available to volunteer to help clean and muck out homes with flood damage. If you are able to help with this process, please contact www.volunteerlouisiana.gov. Any organization or church group is also encouraged to sign up. Tens of thousands of homes across the region have been impacted by the floods. Families need this type of support in order to continue the massive recovery process. The volunteer support in Louisiana has been tremendous. We need to continue this effort to help our neighbors during their time of need.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future.
