Rising Star Baptist Church, led by Pastor Donald August, held its quarterly town hall meeting on Tuesday, October 5, 2010. In attendance were, Parish President Natalie Robottom, members of her administration, District Attorney Tom Daley, Assessor Whitney Joseph, Public Schools Superintendant Dr. Courtney Millet, and representatives of the Sheriff's Office.
Each member of the panel was given the opportunity to inform the community of current undertakings of their office as well as their future plans for the parish. Over 50 residents took time from their busy schedules to attend the meeting and express their concerns and support.
"Neighborhood and town hall meetings, such as these, will be embraced and encouraged throughout the parish," said Parish President Natalie Robottom. Rising Star Baptist Church will host its next town hall meeting in January of 2011.
