The Block Builders hosted a Back 2 School Pool Party for youth July 27 at the Natchitoches City Pool. Despite the threat of dark clouds and a high chance of rain, the turn out was tremendous. Kids from all over Natchitoches ranging in ages from 3-17 showed up for an entertaining evening. The children were treated to hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and sodas.

Katrina Demars, a founding member of the Block Builders Organization said, “We, the members of the Block Builder Organization, wanted to give the youth of Natchitoches a chance to enjoy themselves in a safe and happy environment before school resumes.”

Thanks to the Block Builders, the children attending the party received free backpacks to help ease the expenses of school supplies needed by all children as they return to school.
