Dear SBA Members, This is your opportunity to be part of gifting 3 exceptional high school graduates with a scholarship. SBA holds yearly
a raffle ticket sale to secure the funds - think about it... you/your company buy or sale a book of tickets at $5 per ticket = $50 (10 tickets per book)
times the SBA membership and that could mean a huge scholarship for these students. (It only takes 60 books to sale and make $3,000 for these scholarships).
This year (2015) SBA gave $1,000 to three deserving students - the winners were: Kami Smith, Kealy Stelly, & Chelsea Noel.
Be part of this exciting time - call for a book or several books of tickets.
PLUS, your participation in creating the gift basket is needed - gift certificates or gift of your choice (remember to shop Scott for that gift certificate
if your company does not have one to offer).
Please call Cherie Gautreaux at 337-581-0464 or stop by Gautreaux's Donuts on Wed. or Thurs. morning to see Cherie. OR call Tonya Carola 337-257-1066 and she can help you out.
These scholarships are coveted by these young people - we are already getting calls for 2016 scholarship offerings. Remember, the students are recognized
from Acadiana High School, Carencro High School, and a student that is home schooled or attends a school of choice (resident of Scott).
Let's work hard to match what SBA did last year for the students, Thank You.

SFD Board Member Openings
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Members of the Scott Fire Department Board of Directors have an important responsibility,
providing residents with the best fire protection funding will allow. As history would dictate,
they have been doing a great job, providing the City of Scott with a Classification of 3 (best for any volunteer department in the Parish,
and top 5% for all volunteer departments in the Country).
There are two, possibly three, vacancies on the Board, needing to be filled. These members have done an exceptional job for our great City,
however their obligations to their career and family life have increased, making it difficult to contribute to SFD.
A few examples of Board Members responsibilities are to work with the Fire Chief to:
-To make an annual estimate of the... expense for carrying out such program
-To manage and conduct the business affairs of the department
-To purchase firefighting and rescue equipment, supplies, and other real or personal property as necessary . . . to carry out the general
fire protection and rescue program of the department.
As a member of SBA, you obviously take pride in our great city. If you are interested in assisting SFD, by providing the best possible fire protection,
not only to your business, but all businesses in the area, please assist by becoming an SFD Board Member.
We meet once, every other month, at 19:00 to conduct business at the Lions Club Fire Station.
If you are interested, please be at the August 10, 2015 at 19:00, at the Lions Club Fire Station.
If you have any questions regarding this, or any other matter, feel free to contact me at 337-322-9955.

"Firefighters train for hundreds of hours, for that one second to save a total stranger."

My name is Katherine Laborde and I am a teacher at Scott Middle School. The Daily Advertiser has sponsored a program each year to supply teachers
with school supplies for their classrooms. (The link at the bottom of this email is the newspaper article about it.)
There are several teachers from Scott's area schools that are on the list. I thought how fitting for Scott area businesses to adopt their very own teachers.
What I'm asking of you is to make these businesses aware of this program and the need in their community. If you can advise me on how to get the word out
and if there is anything you could help me with.
I thank you in advance for your time and your help.

Every five years, the Property Insurance Association of Louisiana (PIAL) evaluates fire departments throughout Louisiana in terms of fire protection capabilities,
for the purpose of establishing insurance premiums. During the last evaluation of PIAL, conducted on March 24, 2011, the Scott Fire Department
received 23.10 (maximum of 35) for "Credit for the Water System," which reviews main capacity and hydrant distribution. Scott Fire and Elected officials immediately
prioritized improving our aging underground infrastructure. On March 31, 2015, Governor Jindal awarded the City of Scott $467,000, through the Louisiana Community
Development Block Grant, to upgrade the water distribution system within the City. During the May 7, 2015 Council Meeting, City Officials unanimously approved
Resolution #2015-3, a resolution granting the authority to Mayor Purvis J. Morrison to sign and submit all necessary documents along with adopting certain policies,
plans & procedures in connection with the Community Development Block Grant Program for water system improvements project. This project will improve water distribution
system, in addition to improving fire protection within the city, at minimal cost to our citizens.
This is yet another example of how emergency officials and elected officials work together to provide the best quality of life for the people we serve.
Please feel free to contact me if I can assist with this or any other matter.
