The Livingston Volunteers for Family and Community clubs gathered for their annual Christmas program Dec. 4 at Hebron Baptist Church in Denham Springs.

This year’s host club was Port Vincent with the theme “Christmas at Grandma’s.”

Port Vincent President Jane Vizinat welcomed the members, Port Vincent Vice President Fay Brady led the club collect and Pledge of Allegiance and LVFC Vice President Gloria Flick provided updates.

The LaPetite Lagniappe Dulcimer Group, comprised of Peggy Broussard, Denise Odum, Betty Kirby and Helen Bankston, entertained with traditional Christmas songs, including some singalongs.

The LVFC clubs donated $1,400 raised from raffles and garage sales to Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge, represented by Director Jill Roshto. Members also donated new toys for the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office Christmas Crusade for Children, accepted by Sgt. Raymond Prokop, and exchanged homemade Christmas gifts.

Port Vincent Treasurer Phyllis Mack gave the blessing, followed by refreshments.

This year’s program included a cookbook with recipes compiled by the Port Vincent club, which also prepared some of the recipes so members could sample the items from the cookbook.

LVFC works to strengthen individuals, families and communities through education, leadership and action. Its four chapters are the Can Do’s, Lady Bugs, Albany and Port Vincent. Members meet monthly and conduct educational service projects in Livingston Parish.
