The Rotary Club of Crowley held its weekly meeting Tuesday. Program organizer Carolyn Barousse, third from left, welcomed Audry Spencer, second from left; Loretta Broussard, far left; and Betty Gums, far right; to the meeting Tuesday to talk about the ETCFE tutoring program.

To say that the past year has been a whirlwind for Audry Spencer may be an understatement. “I’ve received a lot of blessings lately,” she said at Tuesday’s meeting of the Rotary Club of Crowley.
It took months of debate for the Acadia Parish School Board to finally come to an agreement, but after an 8-0 vote Monday night, the school district will be providing breakfast and lunches free of charge to 19 schools in the district.
