With the New Parish president in office, he’s picking up after the previous administration and continuing the efforts of Project Front Yard.
Festivals, Crawfish Boils, our love of music and all things art’s and culture the idea is to carry over that pride and that enthusiasmn that we have for what happens in our backyard.
Carry that over to our front yards, the face of our community.” Said Chief of Commuications Cydra Wingerter
Project front yard was started as a movement during former parish President Joey Durel’s time in office.
Over the past couple of years the project has partnered with many community based organizations in an effort to beautify Lafayette.
“Our front yard is the face of our community. Our proverbial front yard and it represents who we are.
In Lafayette and Acadiana there’s a lot to love about us. But not a lot of peole fall in love with us right away.” said Wingerter
In March, during a community event, project front yard sucessfully cleaned up nearly three-thousand yards of yard waste over a five week period.
Chief Communications Officer Cydra Wingerter says under the new parish president Joel Robideaux, there wont be any slowing down on project front yard momentum.
“Plastic bag roundup its a challenge to local elementary and middle school students to collect the most number of platic bags or the most pounds of plastic bags.
It’s educational because it teaches the students and adults alike about the three R’s, reduce, reuse, recycle .” said Wingerter
Project front yard and the Robideaux Administration have several front yard projects planned for the spring time and encourage residents to continue to recycle.
