Mansfield Garden Club Honors Jo Ivey Moody with Arbor Day Memorial Tree Planting

Mansfield Garden Club Honors Jo Ivey Moody with Arbor Day Memorial Tree Planting

Nationwide, Arbor Day is observed on April 22, but the Mansfield Garden Club wanted to honor one of their own a little earlier. Long-time member Jo Moody Ivey passed away on February 22, 2020, and club members wanted to plant a tree in her memory at the DeSoto Parish library. The location was perfect since “Mrs. Jo” was both an avid reader and gardener.

Jo, also known as Memaw around Mansfield and Grand Cane, loved to help others and touched the lives of so many with her love of God, family, and the community. You could often find her watering flowers at Mansfield’s planter boxes on Polk Street.

Louisiana 4-H Offers Tips to Keep Kids Safe While Home Alone

With Louisiana schools shuttered for the next few weeks in an effort to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, many children may find themselves at home alone.

“Parents should decide if their children are mature enough and are able to take on this responsibility,” said Renee Castro, 4-H coordinator for the LSU AgCenter Southeast Region. “If this is the only option, each family should have a ‘home alone plan’ in place to ensure the safety of their children.”

Taking time to make a plan that kids can follow when they’re home without adult supervision can help keep them safe and put parents’ minds at ease.
