Some 67 teams converged over the weekend at the Youngsville Sports Complex and the Broussard Sports Complex, and it was these participants who supplied in excess of 2000 toys for the Marine Corps’ TOYS for TOTS.

Marine Corps League State Commandant, Ronnie Broussard, commented “we want to thank Louisiana USSSA for their support by including Toys for Tots in this outstanding event. The efforts of this event made a lot of children happy on Christmas morning. The amount of toys collected was unbelievable. Louisiana USSSA has stepped in as a valuable partner to Toys for Tots, and its mission to provide a Christmas for all needy children.”

Many Bass Club holds December tournament

Mac McPhearson took Big Bass honors with a 4.30 pound lunker.

The club officers would like to thank all the members and their families for supporting the Many Bass Club during the 2018 tournament year. Twelve monthly tournaments and the Championship Tournament on Lake Nacogdoches were all great memories of friendship, tournament wins and losses. Special thanks to the Herr family who were gracious enough to feed our outlaw group and allow us in their home for our annual banquet and the McPhearsons for the great meal (really great meal) served at the Championship Tournament.

The December tournament’s first place winner is Jim Campbell with a five-fish stringer weighing 12.98 pounds. Campbell caught his fish both shallow and deep in the 1215 area of Toledo Bend using a drop shot and carolina rig. Mac McPhearson claims the big bass honors with a 4.30 lunker caught in the north end of the lake.

Sometimes the sessions might have run long so food was eaten where it was available. Thankfully, there was pizza delivery available.

Some of the youth group as they sat awaiting the next session at this year’s Youth Evangelism Conference.

The youth group of Warren Baptist Church had a number of youngsters and chaperones for the two-day event.

Recently, the Warren Baptist Church Youth Group made a trip to Alexandria to attend the Louisiana Youth Evangelism Conference, or YEC.

For some, it was a first trip, while others were more experienced and had attended for several years. However, none expected to experience God in the way they did.
