Dutchtown High School 4H Club makes donation to St. Amant VFD

Griffin 4H Advisor Ms. Lindsay Seely, members of the Dutchtown 4H Club and Volunteer Firefighter Taylor Savoy along with Fire Chief James E. LeBlanc accepting the donation check.

Geismar – When the August 2016 flood struck Ascension Parish and all the schools and fire departments were destroyed in the St. Amant Community, the Dutchtown High School community and staff opened their hearts, their school and all their facilities to the community of St. Amant, stated Fire Chief James E. LeBlanc.

For over a year, the St. Amant Gator Nation shared their daily activities with the Dutchtown Griffin nation on their campus. Twenty-seven months later, the Dutchtown Griffins and their 4H Club is still doing community activities and raising money for the St. Amant Volunteer Fire Department to help with rebuilding its main fire station on Stringer Bridge Rd.

This week the Griffin 4H club with their Advisor Ms. Lindsay Seely made a donation to the St. Amant Volunteer Fire Department to continue to help the Volunteer Firefighters get back in their new fire station.

In 2016, “Our hearts were completely shattered, but our faith remained strong”, stated Fire Chief James E. LeBlanc and here twenty-seven months later to see our rival school across Airline still doing what they can to get us back in our new station, again reminds us all on why we live and raise our children and grandchildren in such a wonderful and dedicated Parish.
