There will be no raining on Relay For Life of Acadia Parish 2015 this year.
After a couple of years of rain forcing Relay’s early closure, this Saturday, Relay For Life will be held at Rayne’s Frog Festival Pavilion, meaning the weather will not stop the fun or the cause Saturday, April 25, at 6 p.m.
The Rotary Club of Crowley welcomed a report from the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra & Conservatory of Music Tuesday on the Do-Re-ME! program that is netting great results thus far. On hand were, from left, Debbie Spallino, program organizer; Iya Tsyrkot and Rebecca Doucet, ASO; and Mary Zaunbrecher, club president.
With just one 30-minute session per week, the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra & Conservatory of Music’s Do-Re-ME! program is netting good results.
Their goal of 20 percent increases in student test scores – labeled as aggressive for a low-dose program – are being met.

After a year of hard work, 4-H’ers from across Acadia Parish will converge upon Midland High School Friday, April 24, to celebrate the year.
The appropriately titled Achievement Day will provide fun, educational opportunities for 4-H’ers and feature the recognition of Julie Hebert as this year’s honoree and Ethan Breaux of Iota Middle 4-H for his winning theme.
Breaux’s theme, “Let’s Sound Off For 4-H!!!!” takes its cues from the armed forces. His drawing also features the 4-H Pledge and military men carrying modified 4-H flags.
