Each year the Erath 4th of July Association works
diligently to host the town's annual fun filled family
festival. Not only does the group bring this anticipated
event to the community, they've always turned around to
"give back" the community in various ways. In the past,
this hard working group has donated to the Acadian
Museum, the Town of Erath, to various local groups in
need, and to the schools. Again this year, all four
schools were offered the opportunity to complete grants
to apply for their school needs.
On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the Erath 4th of July
Association announced that the four Erath schools were
their 2017 "Giving Back to the Community" recipients.
All four Erath area schools were given $500 in grant
funding to be spent on earmarked projects submitted to
the organization. Upon receiving grants, the group
decided to help with funding for these schools projects.
On that day, the four local school Principals were on
hand to accept their grant money from Erath 4th of July
President Robert B. Vincent and Treasurer Claudette
Lacour and board member Jackie Vincent. The leaders who
attended the grant donation session included, Karla
Toups from Dozier Elementary, Marc Turner from Erath
High, Wendy Stoute from Erath Middle and Dawn Amy from
