Lincoln Parish remembered the true meaning of volunteerism at the annual Lincoln Parish Schools Community Volunteers Appreciation Luncheon, sponsored by Community Trust Bank on Tuesday in the Ruston Civic Center.
Senior Vice President of Culture Strategies for Community Trust Bank Ryan Kilpatrick opened the event with an explanation of his title and why it correlates with the importance of community.
The Village of Choudrant was presented with a new fire engine during the regular meeting of the Choudrant City Council Tuesday evening.
Volunteer Fire Department Captain Jimmy Knox announced the new addition during the meeting.
“We had one of our trucks break down and go out of service, but through a lot of hard work from our firemen and the sale of our gun raffle tickets over the last two or three years, we were able to raise some money,” he said. “By the grace of God, we found a good, used truck that is in top shape.”
