****************************************************
UPDATE on Summer Day Camp AS OF 5/11/2020

Our department is waiting Governor John Bel Edwards’ press conference scheduled today (5/11/2020) at 2:30pm to see what decisions are made in regards to the potential phasing process for re-opening the state.

Depending upon his announcement, administrative staff will meet, as well as get with our legal department, to get advice on what summer day camp 2020 could look like. We are weighing all options and considering several possibilities. These decisions take time and are not being taken lightly. We only want what is best for campers, their families, and staff during these uncertain times.

We will notify all parents by the end of the week and post updates to our page.

We wish you continued safety and good health!

Thanks!

What a great tribute by Loreauville Youth Baseball. Such a good man who was instrumental in the growth of youth programs, PONY softball/baseball, and more for our area. He will be missed!

It is with great sadness that we share the obituary of Mr Alton Darby. Mr Alton was very instrumental is the growth of PONY Baseball/Softball in our area, as well as all other youth programs. He was a coach, league administrator, and tournament director for multiple decades. With his tireless work he rose to the highest levels within PONY Baseball/Softball in hopes to make the organization the best youth program available. He was also a very accomplished architect that designed many of the buildings you see today, including a large number of schools. Mr Alton coached many of the area's youth that went on to also become youth coaches. We can only hope we continue to set a positive example the way he did for so many years.

This summer, I attended the IREC Wellness Water Classes at the Isle of Iberia RV Resort. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed the water yoga, water aerobics and water Zumba classes!! The instructors were amazing and made the classes fun and easy to do at your own pace. We utilized the Lazy River and had a great time! That said, I would like to ask that you consider something along the lines of an indoor Wellness Swimming Pool for Iberia Parish, that could be used year-round for this purpose.
