Cookbooks, Posters, and Fellows...Oh my!

On April 25th, GRFA unveiled a new poster at Audubon Nature Institute's Zoo-To-Doo for Kids, a family-friendly event with special activities for kids.  This new poster, in partnership with Audubon, features the artwork of Audrey Marsh, winner of this year's art contest.  Audrey's poster comes in three colors and is available online for $19.99 at www.auduboninstitute.org.  Proceeds from all sales benefit Audubon Nature Institute and GRFA.

The poster is available in three colors:  pink, blue, and yellow.

GRFA volunteers and Louisiana A+ Fellow Natalie Istre were also at the Zoo to share STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) projects with families.  We had a great time getting creative at Zoo-To-Do for Kids!

Four days later in Lafayette, St. Thomas More High School hosted a special book signing for GRFA's The Pot & The Palette Cookbook.  Several of the school's students have artwork featured in this publication, and they were there to add their signatures to all copies sold.  Executive Director Jacques Rodrigue, an alum of St. Thomas More, was also on hand to share stories about this award-winning cookbook.

This past weekend, Louisiana A+ Fellows gathered at the R. W. Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport for a Spring retreat.  Visit the Louisiana A+ news page to read about how this group of educators is making plans for the coming school year.
