Benefit a success
Kendall Hebert, development director of Holy Family School in Port Allen, reports that the second annual “Ava and Jacob Saucier Memorial Scholarship” benefit held this past weekend was a success.
More than 100 volunteers and hundreds of donors showed support for the family and friends of Ava Dawn Saucier and Jacob Michael Saucier, who died in a home fire last August. The event brought in $21,000 in donations, Hebert said.

The luncheon will be held between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Aug. 30 at Gabriel’s House, in St. Gabriel with Mayor Lionel Johnson Jr. serving as the guest speaker.

A Holy Family makeover
Fifth-grade students at Holy Family School submitted artwork and personal notes to the Spacesaver shelving company last year as part of the “I Love My Library” contest held in April.
The students’ job was to impress upon contest judges that their school’s library was in need of a makeover.
A Spacesaver representative contacted the school’s development director this summer with the good news that Holy Family won the contest.
The new shelving has been valued at more than $23,000. The library’s flat-screen television set is now mounted on a wall, thanks to a wall mounting donated by Olinde’s furniture.
The school hopes to raise the remaining $2,300 needed to complete the makeover within the next year.
The West Baton Rouge Parish Registrar of Voters Office has begun mailing new voter identification cards in anticipation of the upcoming fall elections.
Anyone who hasn’t received their new card by Sept. 15 may call the Registrar’s Office at (225) 336-2421.
