Congratulations to our signees

The Ruston Daily Leader is always proud to see our parish high school graduates head off to college.

It’s for that reason we commend four of our area soon-to-be graduates for signing on recently with college athletics programs.

Judd, Cathy 17.jpg

First let me start out by saying that wonderful news article last week on “Favorite season finally arrives” was not mine. I did get a lot of compliments. Kathy Davis, an LSU AgCenter Master Gardener, wrote the very informative news article — there was a little mix up with the Kathy’s. You will want to put Saturday on your calendar for the LSU AgCenter North Central Louisiana Master Gardeners Spring Plant Sale, which will be held at the Bridge Community Church. The sale begins at 8:30 a.m. and will close at 2 p.m.

Club News: Pierian Club

The March Pierian meeting was held at Sarah Williams’ lovely home.
Dee Colvin and Beverly Johnson were her co-hostesses. The members walked in to hear Vivian McCain calling out —“George, George, where are you? Come out right now!” She was slapping a wooden spoon in her hand, so she really meant business. Finally “George” (Kathey Roane) dressed in his play clothes, came out and began telling the wonderful story of George Rodrigue and the Blue Dog paintings.
