Arts Club shares history

3-1.jpg

The Progressive Arts Club was organized in 1951, starting with a baby shower given in honor of Donzell Malone at the home of Mabel White.
Eva Lewis was elected the first president; Janie Mae Henderson, vice president; Mable White, secretary; and Eunice Hammock, treasurer. Each member present was asked to bring a new member. At the next meeting the four members were joined by four more; namely Alverne Smith, Gertie M. Jackson, Mattie Chaffers and Mattie Richmond (three now deceased).
The Club of "12" Christian women were joined together with a motto, "Love One Another.” The colors, red and white were chosen, signifying the love of Jesus Christ as he died on Calvary.
The name Progressive Arts Club was suggested by a friend, Mary Helen Duncan, deceased. The culture of the club is arts and crafts, with civic affairs affiliated.

Green Clinic took the month of October to raise needed funds for the United Way of Northeast Louisiana as it conducted many fundraising activities, along with a costume and door-decorating contest for employees just to have a little fun. Activities drew to a close during a fish fry hosted by United Home Care on Oct. 31 to coordinate with the Green Clinic’s fall festival.
“We’ve had a chili cook off and a bake sale,” said Rachel Lilly, marketing coordinator with the Green Clinic. “Our ‘Kiss the Pig’ contest has been going on all of this month.”

Tech has homecoming test against UTSA
110101 DISCUSSION C.jpg

Maybe Louisiana Tech University has gotten its “bad” game out of the way.
After scoring more than 50 points in six of their first seven games, the No. 22 ranked Bulldogs produced “only” 28 points in a 28-14 victory over New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, N.M., this past weekend.
That’s only half of the number of points that Tech totalled in each of the first two games of the season.
The way the Bulldogs have been wrecking defenses, such a performance would almost prompt mutiny by Tech fans.

GRAMBLING — No matter how his team’s most recent game is evaluated, Doug Williams knows that the bottom line is another loss at Grambling State University.

This past weekend, the G-Men (1-6, 0-5) lodged deeper in the Western Division of the Southwestern Athletic Conference race with a 23-20 road loss against Texas Southern University.
