The youth group of the Louisiana Community Betterment Association are planning a riverfront beautification project. The project includes replacing the old railroad tie flower beds with stone enclosures, repairing or replacing the poles that stretch across the parking area and painting.
The group has a work day planned for Saturday, April 22nd. They are asking for any volunteers throughout the community that could bring a bobcat or other digging equipment and any able bodies that can help with the replanting and painting.
“We have already been offered help from the Louisiana Democratic Club,” stated Diana Huckstep, Chairperson of LCB. “We are hoping other folks will step up that day also.”
LCB is also seeking monetary or material donations to help cover the cost of the new stone flower beds, paint and new plants. “ We have had many suggestions sent to us via Facebook, but in order for us to accomplish it, it will take funds. We are sure hoping folks in the community will be generous and help to supply what is needed to make our riverfront more presentable to residents and visitors,” stated Huckstep.
There is a “Go Fund Me ” page on Facebook where folks can donate, or they can send their donations to: Louisiana Community Betterment Association, 13384 Hwy. NN, Louisiana, MO 63353. Your donation will be recognized and we are a 501 © 3 association so your donation is tax deductible.
If you would like further information, please contact Diana at: 314-640-4420 or by emailing at: email@example.com
The Louisiana Community Betterment Farmers Market has set it’s opening date. The market will open for business on Wednesday, May 3rd for the 2017 season. The market is held in Sunset Park on Georgia St. and will operate every Wednesday from May 3rd to Oct. 11th.
“We decided to cut the market operating season by 2 weeks this year, due to so many of the vendors not having produce that late into the fall. If the product is there, we do have some vendors that would be willing to operate an extra week or so,” stated Diana Huckstep, Chairperson for LCB and the Market Master.
Operating hours will be 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. each week. We have established an opening time of 3:00 p.m. A bell will ring to indicate the opening of the market this year. No sales will take place before 3:00 p.m. to give our vendors adequate time to get their area set up and ready for the sale.
Unofficial results from the April 4 election. All totals are unofficial until certified by Pike County Clerk Melissa Kempke.

Senior Samantha Henderson from Louisiana High School was named the January female athlete for the 1st Annual MaxPreps High School Athlete of the Month Award, presented by the United States Marine Corps. Henderson plays softball, basketball, and runs track.
“MaxPreps congratulates Samantha on being named High School Athlete of the Month,” said Andy Beal, Founder and President of MaxPreps. "High school sports are designed to build character and foster teamwork and a competitive spirit in our nation's young people. The MaxPreps High School Athlete of the Month represents those outstanding qualities that make not just great athletes, but more importantly fine citizens. MaxPreps is proud to honor these fine student-athletes in collaboration with the United States Marine Corps.”
When asked about Henderson, Bill Capps, Henderson’s softball coach, said “Samantha is driven to succeed both on the field and in the classroom. She has maintained a perfect GPA while playing multiple sports for Louisiana High and playing an intense travel softball schedule. One of the first things Samantha told me when she started playing her freshman year was that she wanted to earn all conference each year she was in high school. Her work ethic throughout her time here helped her to achieve that goal.”
