As you know, my husband and I are involved in Mardi Gras here in the SBC and are personally members of the Krewe of Atlas where we serve as the Duke and Duchess of Lagniappe IV. We're proud of our Krewe and love our fellow Royalty, and with that being said, when the Queen Ruth Grafton speaks, we listen!!! lol Below is a message I got from her this morning regarding Caddo Middle Magnet and their quest for new exercise equipment. As you know, all of our schools need the help but this is just one small way we can do our part... Plus, Queen Ruth says you must!

Good Morning,

As many of you know my grandson Drew attends Caddo Middle Magnet school here in Shreveport.  His school is in a physical fitness contest to win prize money to purchase gym equipment.

There are 15 finalists throughout the country and only one school made the cut from Louisiana…Caddo Middle Magnet.  Voting began on Monday and will continue through November 30th.

You can vote only one time each day.

The website below shows the video they made and allows you to email vote.

Excerpt from web site

We received many outstanding submissions, and the top 15 schools were asked to create a video showing how they would use $10,000 to help get kids fit. Now, the top 15 are ready and waiting for your vote…

so jump right in and meet our finalists!

If easier, you can also vote once a day by text messaging.  Text the word CADD to 50101

Thanks for your help,

Ruth Grafton
