Concerned grandmothers to host men conference

STAFF REPORT @dvillechief

Donaldsonville resident Wanda August and several concerned grandmothers are hosting a “Men on a Mission” Conference for the City on Saturday, May 3 at Donaldsonville High School from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

August said the idea and vision came to empower men to promote and build healthy relationships.

“It’s build, prioritize and focus,” August said to the mayor and council at last Tuesday’s meeting.

The topics for the conference are: building healthy relationships at home and in the community, a focus on vision, purpose and emotions, confident parent strategies, prioritizing and managing your finances.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided to the men.

The event is sponsored by Mayor Leroy Sullivan, the Donaldsonville City Council and CF Industries.
