Donaldsonville Rotary Club

Fire Chief James E. Leblanc of the St. Amant Fire Department was the guest speaker at the Rotary Club meeting last Thursday.

Leblanc expressed his sincere gratitude to the Donaldsonville Rotary Club for all their help, support, and encouragement during the August flooding.

"You were the first to come to our aide," Leblanc said. "And I will always remember that and tell everyone how gracious everyone was in assisting us."

Leblanc continued that although all the St. Amant fire stations were damaged, all of the fire trucks were salvaged.

The Rotary Club gave monetary donations, appliances, and other equipment that was needed to help get the makeshift station online.

The Donaldsonville Rotary Club hosts its meetings on Thursday at noon at Cafe Lafourche, 817 Veterans Blvd., Donaldsonville.
