In years past, the Louisiana Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee has gathered lap blankets, cotton t-shirts and socks, toiletries, coffee and supplies, and even wreaths to give to residents of the five veteran's homes and one veteran's hospital across the state of Louisiana. This year the committee, with help from the parish women's committees, has decided to host programs for the eighth consecutive year at each of the Louisiana facilities.
The purpose of this letter is to not only ask for your assistance in sponsoring these programs, but to also inform you and members of your committees of the dates and times that have been set for each home's program. Each program will be different depending on the needs of the individual homes. Stocking the coffee shop, having donuts with the veterans, calling Bingo and donating prizes are just a sampling of the activities that the Women's Leadership Committee members have planned. I encourage you to contact the committee member listed next to your prospective veteran's home for more details about the day's activities and to encourage your parish members to please attend. These are listed below with the contact information for the state committee member who is in charge of that location.
