The SMILES Committee had quite a year! in July, SMILES hosted the Back-to-School project where they gathered school supplies for over 100 student participants. SMILES participants and committee members have spent Saturdays once a month hosting various events including: painting at Painting With a Twist and Clayfish Bisque, viewing a movie at the Grand Theatre, taking in the Christmas lights at Acadian Village, creating stuffed animals at Build-a-Bear Workshop, playing at the Kart Ranch, bowling at Acadiana Lanes, and visiting the Zoo of Acadiana.

The committee members have enjoyed seeing the warm “smiles” on the faces of the participants and their families. The League partners with Miles Perret Cancer Services for this project.
