At its December meeting, the Rosepine Town Council recognized the “extraordinary” effort of two public and two private institutions as the community and the parish took a pounding from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey earlier this year.

The Church of Rosepine, United Pentecostal Church of Rosepine, the volunteer fire department and the Police Jury were cited by the council and Mayor Donna Duvall as going above and beyond to assist people in need.
