Aug 13, 2018 02:11PM

Angela Cestia and Jessica Ditch, from the New Iberia Parks and Recreation Fund, raised more than $20,000 through South Louisiana Giving Day to renovate the tennis courts at New Iberia City Park, and in early August presented the check to New Iberia Mayor, Freddie Decourt.

According to Decourt, the renovations will take six to eight weeks to complete.

The mission of the New Iberia Parks and Recreation Fund, a fund of Community Foundation of Acadiana (CFA), is to revitalize the parks in New Iberia and improve the quality of life for the citizens of our community. The fund is registered and managed under the Iberia On Tap organization.
