April-May 2017 President’s Report

Our March meeting was very well attended and I would like to thank all the members who were able to come out and support your civic association. Our guest speaker, State Representative Cameron Henry, shared vital information about the state’s budget crisis, what new taxes may result and where cuts would be necessary. His passion and energy for government are apparent. I would like to thank Representative Cameron Henry for his time and information.

The Spring Fling on April 1, 2017 was also well attended. It was a pleasure to see all the little ones from the community making new friends and playing games. The band played some great tunes and there was plenty of food to go around. Jefferson Parish did an outstanding job setting the gym up for us and we truly appreciate their services. We would also like to thank PAWS for bringing some puppies to visit with us. My officers and board members made it all possible and STCA has truly been blessed with their service to our neighborhood. I would like to thank some wonderful members whom showed up early and helped out wherever they were needed. A special thanks to Mike Doyle and his family for not only donating the ice but bringing it to us. Congrats to all the winning members that walked away with the beautiful fresh flower arrangements. In all, we had over 70 members attend.

Our next general membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at Jefferson Playground, Golden Age Center. The doors will open at 6:30 pm and we will start promptly at 7:00 pm. Our guest speaker will be Director Mitch Theriot of Jefferson Parish Drainage Department. He will present the updated information concerning drainage in Jefferson Parish. We have had some very heavy rain events in the last several months and we all have concerns about how the drainage infrastructure will affect us. We thank anyone in advance for donating a dessert for the community table and we will most graciously accept all.

Also please mark your calendars for our July general membership meeting. The date is July 11, 2017 at 7:00 pm at Jefferson Playground, Golden Age Center. We are working hard to put together a presentation on the newest information necessary for Hurricane preparedness.

We wish you all a Blessed Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Here’s to hoping your 4th of July will be a BLAST !
