Area running and walking enthusiasts have plenty to be excited about, as a new store meant to cater to the needs of runners opened Monday in downtown Ruston.
The store, Tri-Running, is the third of its kind in the state, and the recently opened Ruston location has been a vision of the store’s owners for the past 10 years.
“The whole thought process on bringing this store here started about 10 years ago. I am from this area, and wanted to build a specialty store for runners,” said co-owner Shawn McMillan. “The market really wouldn’t support us over the years, but we kept looking to do it, following the patterns of the economy, and we finally have a store.”
If you love to sing, instead of singing for your supper, why not sing for the summer?
Piney Hills Harmony Chorus of Sweet Adelines is, for the first time, offering a Summer Singers program as an invitation to area women to join the chorus for three rehearsals and to share the love of singing, harmonizing and performing.
Women ages 12 and up may attend on June 2, 9 and 16 from 6-8 p.m. in the fellowship hall of the Presbyterian Church of Ruston, 212 N. Bonner.
