St. Amant students help to beautify Gonzales special needs park
GONZALES - Over 400 students from St. Amant High School performed community service at Kidz Kove Discovery Park on Wednesday.
The Future Farmers of America student organization at the school cleaned out the flower beds at the park and created new ones.
The park caters to people with special needs and the organization picked the park because they wanted to leave a lasting impression on something they recognize as important and a resource to the community.
One of the flower bed will be raised to allow anyone in a wheelchair to tend to it.
Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux said that he is appreciative of the students' work to the park.
“It’s heartwarming to know that the youth in this parish see the importance of having an all-inclusive park, and want to help keep it as beautiful as it can be,” Arceneaux said.
