The beginning of a new year brings several upcoming programs to the Lincoln Parish Library for residents to enjoy.
Each event will be different, and will offer community members something unique to prepare for.
• “Color Your Way to Calm” is an adult coloring workshop that offers participants a chance to relax as they visit with others and “release the artist within.” The program will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in the Lincoln Community Room. It is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Over the years, many an area athlete have made Lincoln Parish sports fans proud.
On Saturday night, it was former Louisiana Tech University men’s basketball standout P.J. Brown’s turn.
Brown became the sixth representative from the Bulldogs’ basketball program and 53rd overall from the parish to be inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame during ceremonies at the Natchitoches Events Center.
Along with boosting Tech’s number of men’s basketball players in the state Sports Hall of Fame, he increased the parish’s total in that sport to 11 (Grambling State University has five).
While some are enjoying a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner, others will be busy developing their Black Friday shopping game plan.
Each year, stores offer the best deals of the season on the Friday after Thanksgiving to get holiday shopping started with a bang. Residents will line up for sales starting as early as 6 p.m. Thursday to make sure they get the presents their loved ones are hoping to see under the Christmas tree this year.
