Rotarians Make Progress on Playground at Safehaven

Northlake Mandeville Rotarians have obtained a Rotary District grant and support from five nearby Rotary clubs for the last 4 years to purchase and build a playground for children whose parents visit the Safehaven campus in Mandeville for mental health services.  Over 5,000 people obtained services at Safehaven in 2022.  Shown here are 6 of the 9 elements which will comprise the playground.  Also shown in the background are white totes containing the rubber mulch which forms the floor of the playground.  Rotarians are meeting on Fridays each week to complete the installation of the equipment.  A fifth grant will be applied for in May to purchase benches, additional mulch, borders to contain the mulch, and to refurbish and convert the tennis court shown in the background to pickle ball courts.

Rotarians Receive Help From La. Conservation Corp

Last Friday on February 24, 2023, Rotarians worked again on the playground we are building at Safe Haven for the children of those being treated for mental issues.
The difference was that on Friday we were assisted by four young people from the Louisiana Conservation Corp.  LCC is part of Americorp and is like the old Civilian Conservation Corp.  These young people helped us load and distribute 300 cubic yards of rubberized mulch which will be the floor of the playground.  They were highly motivated, had positive can-do attitudes, and worked hard the entire morning. They were a joy to work with.  Our country will be in good hands with young people like them.  With their help, we were able to load wheelbarrows and spread 30% more mulch in half the time versus the previous week.
Thanks to Breana, Jo, Emily, and Hunter!  They are scheduled to help us for another day in April.

Rotarians Lead Blood Drive

During the early Spring of 2022, the blood supplies in St Tammany Parish were at dangerously low levels.  Rotary President-Elect Marty Audiffred identified the need and organized a blood drive through the Blood Bank of Mandeville.  He enlisted two partner sponsors - the Beau Chene Homeowners Association and the Beau Chene Country Club.
The Blood Drive was held on Thursday, April 21, 2002 at the Beau Chene Country Club before, during, and after the regular Rotary Club meeting.

Safe Haven Pavillion

One of our club's important missions is our mental health initiative to address the growing mental health needs in our area.  Our club is committed to developing the recreation and meditation areas at Safe Haven, a multi-agency collaborative effort currently being developed on the grounds of the former Southeast Louisiana State Hospital.  The club's efforts are dedicated to Ken Thompson, a very special Rotarian who died suddenly last year while serving as Rotary District #6840 Governor.  Our club refurbished this lovely pavilion.  Pictured here are our club members celebrating the "crowning" of the pavilion with our Rotary Wheel.   Not long after we had our Annual Crawfish Boil here!

Visits by our Rotary Scholars!

One of the most gratifying things our club does is host the Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Scholarship Program.  In its 20th year, the program awards two $12,000 scholarships to local graduating seniors based on a combination of their merit, need, and community service.  Our program doesn't just involve giving a check.  Our "Rotary Scholars" as they are endearingly referred to, come back every semester to give us an update as to how they are doing, their academic and social achievements, and more.  Our Scholars have expressed repeatedly how much being part of our Rotary Family means to them.
On the far left is Rotary member Boyd McPhail and on the far right is Evans Spiceland.  In the middle, from left to right, are some of our current Rotary Scholars including Ruston Keller, Kari Ousterhout, Ashleigh Touchard, and Isabel Baird.
We are so proud of our Scholars
