The Lincoln Parish Museum and Historical Society is in the process of our annual fund drive for 2013.
We are not funded by the state or the federal government. The organization is funded by the citizens of this parish, and we are very proud of this. We have been a museum for 38 years, and we are looking forward to many more years.

A new Louisiana Begonia Society has been formed. Initially, there are members in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Shreveport and Ruston. Two of the new members are Karen Armstrong and Freda Holley.
Initially, the new Society will have a bimonthly E-Newsletter, an annual meeting in various member cities and eventually, it is hoped, a web site. Its goals are to share knowledge about the best begonias for Louisiana and how to grow them successfully and to facilitate communication among its members.
