Mardi Gras Ball tickets available

Miller, Laura mug.jpg

Come dine, dance and support the arts with us this February.
The Ruston Civic Symphony Society’s Annual Mardi Gras Ball has been a highlight of the North Central Louisiana Mardi Gras scene for a long time.

Before the Christmas holidays I had the chance to swing by the Lincoln Parish Museum to talk with James White and Margaret Ann Emory, museum director, about an exhibit they currently have on display.
This exhibit of churches illustrated by White was truly remarkable. But while I was there, Margaret Ann also showed me another exhibit that was on display.
As we walked into the back room of the museum, I was floored by the exhibit that was before my eyes. Enclosed in multiple cases, which will remain on permanent display in the museum, were countless Native American artifacts.
