Join us in congratulating our 2020 Avoyelles Rotary Scholarship recipients! These students are well-rounded in academics and service and represent Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self.
The Avoyelles Rotary Club interviews and selects one student from each Avoyelles parish high school* in the service area, one student residing in Avoyelles attending an out of parish school, and the Margaret Plauche Memorial scholarship.

Vaccines save lives, and the effort to #endpolio is proof that #VaccinesWork. This week is World Immunization Week, and it’s an opportunity for the world to reflect on the work being done to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases like polio, measles, and tuberculosis.

It was such an honor to host such an extraordinary gentleman, leader and someone who truly exemplifies Rotary’s motto of “service above self.” Our guest speaker today was none other than Coach Charles Smith of Peabody Magnet High School, 2019 Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame inductee, numerous time Louisiana Coach of the Year and, as winner of last weekend’s State Championship, the Louisiana coach with the most wins ever - 1072 to be exact! He is an unequaled role model and mentor to his students and we are so grateful he and two of his star athletes were able to attend and speak at today’s meeting. Thank you Coach Smith for a truly inspirational speech on leadership!

Citizens of Avoyelles Parish, I have created a very short anonymous survey to learn about what YOU believe should be done with the Courthouse. I am interested in this topic not for a political discussion, but because it is specifically related to our downtown Marksville revitalization efforts. The survey is very short; it should only take 2-3 minutes. This is not a scientific poll, but it will greatly help inform the discussion. Thank you. Avoyelles voters only please!
The Opelousas Walgreens is offering Veterans free flu shots! No appointment is needed. Pharmacy hours are Monday through Friday 7am-11pm. Saturday’s and Sunday’s 9am-9pm. Come see us!
