What, Why and How of Parish Proud

Parish Proud’s vision of creating a Parish that stands as beautiful and vibrant as our culture remains present in our minds daily.

Parish Proud knows that if we, as citizens and organizations, come together to work towards our three E’s of eliminating litter, encouraging beautification and enhancing Parish Pride, there’s nothing we can’t do.

Litter free sidewalks, cleaner waterways, beautiful talent-attracting landscapes… nothing is out of our grasp if we work together.

We embrace the idea that citizens have a right to live in a clean, beautiful parish. We exist to inspire our community to raise its standard of expectations by demanding more from ourselves, our neighbors, our business community, and our government entities.
