lifestyle.jpg

We always enjoy August when the NCLAC office prepares our annual membership campaign newsletter.
Looking forward to the next three months gives me a thrill, knowing we have so many wonderful programs in store.
Our film series, fall farmers market table, art crawl, performances, and school outreach programs are all offered for the community, and to continue to offer these opportunities, we need the support of memberships.
NCLAC isn’t in the budget for the City of Ruston or the Lincoln Parish Police Jury.
We’re not funded through endowments or foundations.

Louisiana’s open for business

Louisiana has taken some pretty hard — and often deserved — hits over the last year or so as the state edged closer and closer to tumbling over a lethal financial cliff, only to redeem itself in flurry of pure politics at half past the last minute.
