President's Message -- Donna Bucci, BVGC President -- 2015-2017
Dear Fellow Members,
I am happy to report that our theme “Working Together” has opened up new goals for us!
- Our extremely successful “Healthy Snacks” project was the first of its kind in our parish. Because this project was so well received, we will expand this project and start a new Butterfly Garden at Bayou Vista Elementary School this year.
- We planted 12 trees and 24 shrubs through our Civic Development projects on Southeast Boulevard and at the Bayou Vista Community Center with the help of the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Department. Our goal this year is to replant more trees on Southeast Boulevard to replace the ones that were removed due to disease and age.
- Our members presented LSU’s “Ag in the Classroom” project to two elementary schools in our area and this year the goal is to include three schools.
- We completed a two year “recipe collection” and now have our “Bayou Vista Garden Club Really Cooks” cookbook ready to sell as a fundraiser.
Donna Bucci, President
