The 27th annual Louisiana Chicken Festival is underway in Dubach with the main festival day set for Saturday, Sept. 26.
Dubach Restoration and Beautification Organization Event Coordinator Gina Stokes said this year’s festival will be a great time for all of the family to enjoy.
“(On Sept. 25) we have things kicking off at noon with arts, crafts and food booths set up in downtown Dubach,” she said. “Then at about 6 p.m. we will get bingo started at the Scott Hamilton Warehouse followed by an Elvis Tribute concert at the First Guaranty Bank Stage and parking lot.”
The countdown has begun, and in a little less than three weeks students will hear the first school bell ring heralding in a new school year.
In order to make the process as smooth as possible, Mary Null, director of instruction and personnel for the Lincoln Parish School Board, encourages parents to make sure all school business is taken care of on time.
“For parents to avoid possible delays in placement or waiting in line at the school board office for registration, we’re encouraging them to register before August,” Null said. “Also, registering ahead of time gives the students a sense of comfort about where they’re going and when they’re starting. That way things are not rushed at the last moment.”
Area residents and state legislators got together Monday night for a meeting of the minds and the opportunity to find out where each stands on political issues.
Rep. Patrick Jefferson, Sen. Bob Kostelka, Rep. Rob Shadoin and Sen. Rick Gallot appeared at Monday’s Tea Party meeting at the Ruston Country Club.
“I think the meeting went very well,” organizer Bob Flournoy said. “I think people needed to ask a lot of those questions and have them talked about, even if there are no clear answers for many of them.”
