2015 Erath 4th of July "Giving
Back to the Community" recipients.
Each year the Erath 4th of July
Association works diligently to host the
town's annual fun filled family
festival. Not only does the group bring
this anticipated event to the community,
they've always turned around to "give
back" the community in various ways. In
the past, this hard working group has
donated to the Acadian Museum, the Town
of Erath, to various local groups in
need, and to the schools.
Again this year, all four schools were
offered the opportunity to complete
grants to apply for their school needs.
During the fall and winter, all four
schools submitted grants with specific
needs. The week of February 24th, the
Erath 4th of July Association announced
that the four Erath schools were their
2015 "Giving Back to the Community"
All four Erath area schools were given
$1000 in grant funding to be spent on
earmarked projects submitted to the
organization. Upon receiving grants,
the group decided to help with funding
for these schools projects.
Erath High and Erath Middle earmarked
their funding toward purchasing
technology equipment for students.
Dozier Elementary who already had a
technology plan in place and was
looking to raise funding to replace
outdated computers will add this funding
to that earmarked computer project they
began in the fall. Their plan of action
is to purchase Windows 7/8 student
computers. LeBlanc Elementary's grant
stated they were interested in
purchasing a student microphone system.
On Friday, February 27, 2015, the four
local school Principals were on hand to
accept their grant money from Erath 4th
of July duo, President Robert B. Vincent
and Treasurer Claudette Lacour. The
leaders who attended the grant donation
session included, Karla Toups from
Dozier Elementary, Marc Turner from
Erath High, Sandy Huval from Erath
Middle and Dawn Amy from LeBlanc
