IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ!!!

SHOW PERFORMANCE TIME - Time Limit Notice All Entertainers : Please note
the 3:15 sec time limit. We would like all entertainers to keep their performance
tracks no more than 3 minutes 15 seconds, If your track is longer than 3:15 you
will not be allowed to sing it. Too many performers are using Four and Five
minute performance tracks. This is causing Louisiana Kids performance time to
cross over into the next venue time performance or go over our half hour / one
hour performance time slots.

Rules and some of your options to help assist you.
2008 Performance Track Rules

FLIP FLOPS: This issue has been an ongoing issue with our Entertainers and we
must bring it to an end immediately. Now, we will be more specific in regards to
flip flops since they are now made with many sequins / rhinestones attached to
them. The rule now stands if it has a HEEL and is decorated in
sequins/rhinestones it will be permitted. Flip Flops with NO HEELS and
decorated with sequins/rhinestones will NOT BE PERMITTED OR CONSIDERED
as proper performance attire. Flashy with a HEEL is a YES and Flashy without a
HEEL is a NO ! A heel is considered the built up portion of a shoe or boot to
support the heel and should only be found in the back of the flip flop and not
carried over to the front as a raised platform flip flop. If you are still uncertain,
bring extra shoes with you as not to be turned away from your performance
opportunity.

Much Thanks,

Louisiana Kids, Inc. State Directors,

I did not have the opportunity to Thank all of you for awarding
Allison a scholarship yesterday at the awards ceremony.

I was so busy selling food and soft drinks that I did not even
realize that she was given a scholarship until Britney brought it
to my attention. It is very touching that the Louisiana Kids
organization recognizes the Alumni by helping them with their
education expenses. By recognizing the Alumni,  it proves that
the mission and goals of Louisiana Kids extends far beyond the
stage.

I could not begin to put into words what the Louisiana Kids
organization means to my family.  The impact it has had on my
children is far greater than performances. I have said it so many
times that Louisiana Kids has helped them mature by teaching
them proper dress, speech and poise as well as many other
things. You have all served as role models to them, and they
have so much love and respect for all of you.

Also, Chris and I (and my parents) have benefited from the many
loyal friendships that we have formed over these many years.
Thanks to all of you for loving our family without judgments or
conditions. It is a blessing to have friends, who are not blood
related, but who will be there for you any day or anytime with no
questions asked.

Thank you again, and I hope everyone gets some rest.

Love,
Sheila (and what's his name)
