The Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands festival is this Saturday. The festival benefits the UL Band.

Mr. Raymond needs 3-4 scouts again (and at least one parent) who can help with water stations and other activities from 2:30 – 5:30 PM Saturday, November 7th.

This is an approved service project for Scouts (and will probably count for Religion instead if needed for students attending St. Thomas More).

If you are interested please contact Mr. Raymond.
