He reported the club's activities include: the Christmas toy drive, LSUE scholarship, Choices Program, sending local students to Camp Rylla, and sponsoring two high school Interact clubs. It was noted the Ville Platte club is the only club in the district that sponsors two such clubs: at Ville Platte High and Sacred Heart.
