The board of directors of Lincoln Total Community Action, Inc., extends a special thanks to churches, businesses, organizations and individuals that helped to make this year’s banquet held on Sept. 27 a success.
Thanks once again to Darlene Johnson and the Ruston High School Food and Nutrition class, community helpers, Head Start parents, former Head Start students that provided the entertainment, staff and friends for your support.
This August, a family in Ruston enjoyed a special experience by welcoming into their home a high school exchange student from Thailand. This volunteer host family is participating in the SHARE! Student Exchange Program for the 2014-15 school year. And this international exchange student is eager to learn about how Americans live.
The VFW Parnell-Burt Post 3615 wishes to thank all of the veterans and spouses who came out to the Veterans Day program that was held at the 527th Engineering Battalion here in Ruston.
We also want to thank all of the following for their co-operation: the 527th Engineering Battalion for use of their building; the AFROTC for the flag program they put on; Chris Turner from Super 1 Foods and Bill Cox for jointly cooking the meal; all the employees from Super 1 that served the veterans; Jerry Begale and Blue Bell for the ice cream; Coco-Cola for the drinks; and the three speakers. They speakers were Mayor Dan Hollingsworth of Ruston, Major Brad Kendall from the 527th Engineering Battalion and Karl Malone. All three were exceptional.
