WE NEED YOUR HELP: Saturday, April 9th!!!

Community invited to Work Day at the Farm

MINDEN, La—Getting the 'Farm' ready for the 17th annual Spring Arts Festival is no easy task and organizers are asking the community to come out and help. Saturday, April 9th from 9am-2pm volunteers will be gathering at the Farm to spruce the grounds up for the April 28- 30th festivities. Anyone and everyone is invited. "There's plenty for everyone to do, even kids," remarks Chris Broussard, festival co-chair.

"The various flower beds at the Farm will be made ready for spring planting and the grounds could use some weed eating," Broussard adds. "We have a variety of areas that could use a special touch. We have limbs to pick up. Mulch to set out. Trash to pick up. Tables to be washed. Floors to be swept. We would really appreciate the help."

Anyone interested in helping this all-volunteer organization are encouraged to bring their gloves, water and garden tools. Or if you're just inclined to help get the community garden ready for planting, come on by. Lunch will be served to volunteers. "Even if you can only give us an hour of your time, it would sure help," adds Julie Vogel, festival co-chair.

The 17th annual Spring Arts Festival "ChickenStock" is slated for April 28-30th at Cultural Crossroads four acre festival site known more commonly as 'the Farm.' To learn more, check their website at
