Dinner, Movie set for Friday

With temperatures expected to be mild, Friday night will be an excellent time to pack up the family and head out to Lincoln Parish Park.
This is especially true since the annual Dinner and a Movie event, put on by the Junior Auxiliary of Ruston and Rotary of Lincoln clubs, is set to begin at 4:30 p.m.
From games and useful information to a “bug ball” and a bug-themed family-friendly movie, the park will be a hopping place to be on Friday night.
The dinner will be barbecue or hot dogs, which are available for $7, and the movie will begin at dusk.

Night before last I dreamed there was a wild animal stuck in my bed that I couldn’t catch. It was so vivid that I actually woke up with the covers balled up in my hands yelling, “Where is it? Where is it?”

NT@R Junior American Studies student Kailee Rivera and her project group used an iPad as their three-dimensional display to explain rationing during World War II. Students are presenting a World War II Exhibit titled “WWII: Preserving Peace” from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. today in the front corridor of the Lincoln Parish Library.
