A vote of confidence for Louisiana

in

Pulling off successful statewide elections is no easy task; especially those with as much attention and importance as Louisiana’s Congressional races in November and December.

Every month is busy at Emmanuel but December is definitely the busiest.
We started the month off with our book fair. The children loved being able to pick out their very own books and teachers appreciated the many books parents bought for the classrooms.
Ms. Deby and Ms. Monica had a tremendous time on their field trip to see “Santa’s Spy” presented by the Twin City Ballet. Teachers, parents and most importantly the children agreed it was a great performance.

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: What exactly is an estate plan? I hear people talking about them, but I am not sure what one is exactly. Where do you get one? Who does that for you?
