Dixie Inn is pleased to be selected as one of the 98 recipients of the 2023 Keep Louisiana Beautiful Trash receptacle grant program made possible with funding from the State of Louisiana and the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. Dixie Inn will install 3 trash receptacles at the Dorcheat Park and 3 trash receptacles at McClanahan Park.
Through the 2023 trash receptacle grant program, Keep Louisiana Beautiful distributed 879 receptacles to 98 organizations in 40 Louisiana parishes.
