4-H goes to the Cotton Festival

Amid last week’s activities for Cotton Festival the Evangeline Parish 4-H Club has celebrated too. It was National 4-H Week. From pumpkin carving to pet shows club members stayed busy.

Sacred Heart quarterback Wesley Launey (5) has provided some tremendous leadership this season for the Trojans. Sacred Heart is 4-3 on the year and 1-2 in District 5-1A play.
