LOUISIANA – The Louisiana Community Betterment sponsored three Christmas activities this past weekend.  The first was a Children’s Painting Class.  The class was held at PCMH in the cafeteria on Saturday, Dec. 7.  The class instructor was Bev Cogar.  All the children had a wonderful time creating their own masterpieces and enjoyed refreshments.  

The second activity was an Adult Wreath Making Class held at the 4th Street Events Center on Saturday, Dec. 7. Over 14 ladies participated in creating their  “one of a kind” Christmas wreaths.  

Last but not least, was the Christmas Costume Contest held in conjunction with the Photos with Santa, at the Twin Pike YMCA on Sunday, Dec. 8.
