The Aktion Club of Chalmette Members here at the Arc GNO – St. Bernard Project met with the St. Bernard Parish President Guy McInnis on Friday, December 9 at 9:30 p.m. The Aktion Club falls under The Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard-Arabi. The Arc of Greater New Orleans is a day program that serves adults with developmental disabilities. We take them on outings in the community and give back to our community by doing volunteer work. One of our projects is volunteering at the St. Bernard Animal Shelter with Charlotte Luna. Some of our participants also are members of the Aktion Club of Chalmette, Michael B. Chutz is our Kiwanis Advisor in the Aktion club. Our club came up with the idea of purchasing (or raising funds to purchase) doggy waste bags to place in and around Sidney Torres Park. We would like to thank Mr. McGinnis for offering to install the doggy waste bag holder. The idea of partnering with our government to have these doggy waste bag holders placed in our Park will make it look better. We also encourage other clubs, business and pet lovers to donate or purchase doggy waste bag dispensers and bags. The dispenser in the picture is $200.00 with a supply of bags. Alex Taisant and Stephanie Callais are the Arc’s Aktion Club of Chalmette Leaders at. The Arc of GNO can take Donation for this Project they also collect to recycle newspapers & Mardi Gras beads. The Arc of Greater New Orleans St. Bernard Project is at 3700 Jean Lafitte Pkwy. Chalmette, Louisiana, 70043. Please Phone (504) 301-4360 to schedule donation.
