April is child abuse prevention month.   With almost 500 children in custody of DHS here in Hancock County we all need to be aware of the importance of understanding why so many of our children are being abused or neglected.   

Our Battle for the Paddle crawfish cookoff is now scheduled for 16 May at the Our Lady of the Gulf grounds on Beach Blvd. in Bay St. Louis.   This year we will be starting later in the day...around 1pm and it will run until 7 or 8 pm....more details to follow.
