Baton Rouge, La - On October 28, the 4-H LIVING INTERACTIVE FAMILY EDUCATION (L.I.F.E.) National Mentoring Project hosted its 1st Popcorn and Movie Social event for the children of incarcerated parents.  This event is part of the monthly group mentoring activities for the CHANGING HOW I LIVE LIFE (C.H.I.L.L.) component of the project.  The social was held in St. Landry Parish at the Southwest Center for Rural Initiatives with 20 children, four parents, and five mentors in attendance.  The children enjoyed chili dogs, chips, punch, and Halloween candy. They were also able to make their own popcorn balls to enjoy while they watched the animated Halloween movie “ParaNorman.” 

Stacey Nevills, Program Site Coordinator, along with her assistant, Damien Papillion, hosted the event.   Tiffany Wilkerson-Franklin is the 4-H L.I.F.E. project director.
