One of the reasons Ruston and Lincoln Parish are such good places to live is the community mindedness of its citizens.
Eight individuals and two groups that made outstanding contributions to specific causes in 2016 were honored Thursday during the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce banquet. All of the award winners are models of selfless service, often with a business flare.
The holidays are in full force in Lincoln Parish with plenty of events going on throughout the week.
On tap this week, the Russ-Town Band Christmas Concert will be performing, the Dixie Dancers will be dancing and Choudrant will host their annual Christmas parade, among other events.
All of these happenings are family-friendly and sure to spread the Christmas spirit.
Some of these programs will also benefit local community charity projects to ensure an enjoyable holiday for everyone in Lincoln Parish.
