  Months of planning will result in the presentation of a new wellness campaign in Ascension Parish in 2009, parish officials said in a release.
  The program will offer a series of community wellness events to address the needs of parish residents.  The first event, “Getting to Know Our Community” will be held on Saturday, Jan. 31 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Blum Center in Donaldsonville.
  Area organizations will be on hand to educate the community about their services.  Donaldsonville residents are invited to enjoy complimentary food and giveaways at this event.  The program is offered by Ascension Parish and was planned by health care marketing consultant, Tiffany Carter, of Carter Creative Services. 
  For the past two months, Carter has been meeting with citizens and community leaders in the Donaldsonville area to identify the types of programs that they believe are most needed in the community.
These activists agreed that members of the community need to learn more about the resources available in their area. Following the kickoff event on January 31,  Carter is planning new programs for expectant mothers, young adults, parents, and seniors that will be held in the coming year.
