Court Appointed Special Advocates of Northeast Louisiana is currently accepting submissions from local professional and amateur photographers for the third Annual “45 Gallery.” The gallery will feature photos honoring the 45 children in Louisiana who died last year due to abuse or neglect. “The 45 Gallery” will be displayed at Aubrey Hall on Art Alley during the Downtown Gallery Crawl from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on April 5.
The 2015 Ruston Lions Club Golf Tournament will be held on May 4 at Squire Creek Country Club.
The tournament will be an 8 a.m. shotgun start with check-in at the course by 7:15 a.m. Lunch, door prize drawings, and the awards ceremony will follow the tournament.
The golf tournament is an annual event and offers an opportunity for some great fun and fellowship. However, it has a more serious purpose and that is to raise the funds necessary to underwrite the causes supported by local Lions.
