The American Heritage Girls troop took a trip to the Louisiana Tech University Quad to watch a flag ceremony performed by the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC).
Finishing up the girls “Our Flag” project, the troop were able to observe how the ROTC handled the flag and the importance of showing respect to the national symbol.
The recent rains have come just in time for the October planting season. The next several weeks are excellent for planting many plants which will grow during the winter and deliver many gifts to the gardener in the spring. Planting now seems odd, but these plants are adapted for the cooler weather and some require this time to establish themselves for optimum spring growth and production. Plants to put into the ground now include: spring flowering bulbs, cool-season herbs, strawberries and all landscape trees and shrubs.
