CCEC March 2022 Newsletter
New Orleans is still Marching to the beat of it’s on drum. By the time this is published Mardi Gras 2022 will have come and gone.  We, at CCEC, hope it was a safe and happy return to what only those who live in Louisiana can call normal.  What has also become normal in our communities is staying COVID ready.  Let’s remember to wear our masks, wash our hands, and reduce the number of persons in our family and friend gatherings.

Russia Invades Ukraine – Why is this important to the New Orleans community and the CCEC family.  We at CCEC work with youth and a percentage of those youth have an interest in serving in our armed forces and Coast Guard.  As we watch the world's stage change the US is in the thick of things and that means our youth will be affected either as a deployed service man or woman or a child of that service man or woman.  So, we at CCEC wish our New Orleans community of service men and women well and those of our entire nation.  Healthy minds and healthy families develop healthy communities.
