COMMUNITY SERVICE CLUB

Community Service Club

Sponsor: Claire Condon Marquis

The Bayou Academy Community Service Club is an organization that was started in 1996 by Claire Condon Marquis. We started out with 12 girls in this club and it soon grew to around 60 students. This club provides service work for the school, Cleveland area, as well as out of State.  

Some of our events include:

  • School wide Haunted House
  • Halloween Carnival
  • Working in the concession stand during Bayou Academy games
  • Decorating the windows for the nursing homes during holidays
  • Helping the Parton’s League when needed
  • Helping with “Grandparent’s Night” in the elementary
  • Can food drive

  • Friends of the Library – Cleveland Library
  • Taking up donations for the “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society” each year
  • Helping the animal shelter
    • the club is ready to take up donations for the animal shelter throughout the school year
    • Worked many Saturdays to help clean the shelter
  • “Adopt an Angel” for Christmas has been a success for many years
    • Each student buys a gift for a needy child and wraps it up
  • Toy drives during the Christmas holiday for needy children
  • Donating time and supplies to do crafts at the local nursing homes
  • Brings various animals to the nursing home for “Pet Therapy”

    • Hurricane Katarina (we worked many hours in the shelters)

BAYOU BLUES

Bayou Blues

Bayou Blues was recently chosen to participate in the "Our City and Nature" program through the Grammy Museum in partnership with Global Wildlife Conservation. This is a multi-week, ecology based songwriting program that incorporates science and music. The students were given the opportunity at the end of the program to write and record a song about what they learned. Recently, Bayou Blues visited Delta State University's Delta Music Institute to record their original song, "Bleeding Green". The students have learned so much through this program and have had a great time!!!

Also, check out the group picture on the slide show -> Morgan Freeman, Morgan Freeman's daughter, DMI instructor, Barry Bays and Bayou Blues members at the Delta Music Institute!!
