Modern Woodmen fundraiser for Ruston Boy Scout Troop No. 45 was a success.
Members of the local Modern Woodmen of America chapter recently helped raise money for Troop No. 45 by participating in their annual popcorn fundraiser.
The event held this fall raised $5,000. This includes $2,500 matched by Modern Woodmen’s home office through the organization’s Matching Fund program. The money itself will be used for purchasing a trailer to carry their camping equipment.
Cool crisp days ... can fall be coming? Caney Lake Good Sammers hoped it was true as they met at Lincoln Parish Park for their September camp-out. They were welcomed by hosts Patsy and Larry Bond and Cyndi and Bill Austin and Jerrel Huey.
Campers could sit out on the porch and look over to the lake and view. Brown bag suppers on Wednesday evening made easy clean-up for more viewing.
