The Louisiana Alumni and Friends appreciate the support of all who wish to see the work of the Association continue.  Anyone wishing to contribute may send a donation to The Louisiana Alumni and Friends Association, POB 404, Louisiana, MO 63353 or through PayPal on the web site   www.louisianaalumniassociation.org at any time.  Those contributions for the Scholarship Fund should be so designated.  It’s extremely helpful to also include the address of a person to whom the donor wishes a contribution notification to be sent.  Other monies are always welcomed to be used for general purposes (mailings, postage, fundraising projects, financial assistance to school programs, building projects, etc.) and should also be so designated.  The Alumni Association’s primary concern and purpose is helping students and the district in whatever way possible.

All Alumni meetings are open to the public.  There are only six or seven meetings a year and everyone is invited to attend.

The Association also has re-printed copies of its cookbook available for purchase at the Pike County Memorial Hospital Gift Shop, the Louisiana Public Library and the State Farm Insurance Office in Louisiana, and on the web site as an ongoing fundraiser for its work.

Donation envelopes are also available at area funeral homes.  A memorial donation may be made for a deceased loved one or deceased classmates.  An honorarium donation may be made for someone still living perhaps as a gift to honor him or her for some occasion.

All donations to the Alumni Association are greatly appreciated and allow the giving of even more help to the Louisiana R-II School District and its students.
