St. John the Baptist Parish – Parish President Natalie Robottom encourages residents to make their holiday purchases in St. John the Baptist Parish.
Residents can visit http://www.stjohneconomicdevelopment.com/ for an online, searchable directory of local businesses, as well as a wealth of information on the economic impact of buying local. Businesses can register to be a part of the campaign and there is no cost for membership!
Also, please be on the lookout for the annual Holiday Shop Local trivia game in the mail to all Parish residents and businesses. If the correct answers are selected and returned, participants will be entered in a drawing to win gift cards and other prizes from local retailers.
The trivia game will take place through December 28, 2018 and winners will be announced on January 4, 2018. Residents can mail in completed trivia games to 1811 W. Airline Hwy., LaPlace 70068, with ATT: Economic Development or drop them off in the Shop Local collection boxes located at the new Government Complex Building - Parish President's Reception Desk (1811 W.
