Help Needed This Mardi Gras

Every year the Coliseum Square Association collects and distributes snacks to our 6th District police officers during the Mardi Gras season. The officers work long hours while we enjoy the parades and the snacks help them make it through the long days and nights. The officers prefer healthy snacks that they can keep in their pockets and munch on when they are hungry. Fruits, nuts and creative snacks are more appreciated than potato chips and other less nourishing foods.

Individually bagged travel snacks that can be taken on the run are highly desired.

If you are interested in donating snacks or have questions, please contact Marianna Roll at mariannaroll@gmail.com or 504.319.7817.

The CSA Is Pleased to Announce the 2013 Board of Directors

We are pleased to announce the Board of Directors for the Coliseum Square Association for the year 2013. The board was elected by our general membership at the annual meeting on January 20th, 2013.

Join us in thanking the following people for their willingness to roll up their sleeves, get involved in the neighborhood and serve on the board. The CSA has been instrumental in the revival of the Lower Garden District for 40 years and we continue to strive to make our neighborhood one of the most livable in the city. Without the decades of hard work, dedication and volunteer time of people like these, the LGD would be a very different place than we know today.

Again, let’s extend a sincere welcome and thank you to the 2013 Coliseum Square Association Board of Directors.

Sincerely,
Jim McAlister
President
