We created this campaign with sustainability in mind. “SLP Forward” has the simplicity strength and flexibility to be used by many organizations over a long period of time. In the end, our goal is to increase the reach and frequency of the “SLP Forward” message to help boost St. Landry Parish’s image and ultimately attract businesses, residents and visitors to our area.
