Leadership Ascension breaks ground today

Greg Fischer

A 2017 Leadership Ascension team has decided to provide the Council On Aging (COA) facility on Irma Boulevard an outdoor area to enjoy at the Gonzales location.

This location was deemed to lack an outdoor space for individuals to gather in a centralized area that is safe from traffic and weather conditions.

A groundbreaking ceremony has grown as of March 9, according to team member Josh Ory. Representatives from both Ascension Parish, as well as the City of Gonzales will attend to support the project and participate in the ceremony. This will take place today at 4:30 p.m.

"We named our team 'Rockin' Through the Ages,'" Ory said. "We are accepting donations."

The 2017 Leadership Ascension class has been broken up into four teams to find ways to improve the community. The Ascension Parish Chamber of Commerce began its Leadership Ascension program in 1995 to educate and prepare future leaders within Ascension Parish.
