Pancakes For Claire 2010

On November 14, 2010 the annual Pancakes for Claire breakfast was held at St. Jean Vianney Catholic Church. This event has been going on since 2003 as a means to grow the Claire Renee Goudeau scholarship fund that was established in May of 2001. This fund was established to honor Claire's memory by dedicating all  of the donated  funds towards scholarships for tuition and fees to St. Jean Vianney Catholic School. 

At least one award is presented annually to a fourth grade student upon entering the fifth grade. The award is based on personal characteristics including love of school, love of others, and commitment to excellence in school and personal life. In addition to the scholarship the student(s) are presented with an engraved crystal cross donated by Southern Crafts and a gift certificate donated by School Time for a school uniform.

Baton Rouge Beach Marathon

The Fitbird's came out in a strong show of support for their team members that were running in the Baton Rouge Beach Marathon and Half-Marathon today. We were lucky enough to be asked to volunteer at the finish line and were able to hand out medals to all the athletes that competed in the race. It was a great opportunity to show the public what a strong team we are, as well as share our enthusiasm for all the participants who were running.
