Time for talented residents to hit the stage, help

It’s no secret that Ruston and Lincoln Parish love the arts. From the Louisiana Peach Festival arts and crafts show and the annual Holiday Arts Tour to musical and theatrical performances at the Dixie Center for the Arts, as well as the two local universities, residents have access to a variety of different art opportunities throughout the year.
It’s also no secret that people in Lincoln Parish love to give back to their community and to people in need.
So, it should be no surprise that two local events in the near future will celebrate both of these passions.

I went to Fred’s and examined the choices: one blender in a box for $25 or one blender on display for $18.
