Baker program helping to bring community together


The City of Baker is behind a big effort to bring families together through an initiative called "Building Bridges in Baker."

City leaders have planned a series of events to promote community unity.

Mayor Harold Rideau said it began with a little friendly competition between city workers.

"This thing started off as a softball game against police and public works. They are excited about it," Rideau said.

The city is getting ready for the first event, a 5K, scheduled on April 26 at 8 a.m.

Registration begins at 7 a.m.
