Christmas shopping is underway. Local merchants have their best gift selections proudly displayed. Before you travel many miles and expend time and fuel, consider shopping locally. Your purchases at home are good for you, the local economy, and your taxes stay in Red River Parish to help pay for schools and other public services. And you won’t loose your cool trying to “self checkout” at the big box store.
“Mommy, Daddy and Me It’s a Community Affair” will be presented at the Title 1 Parent Center on Alonzo Street next week. The event is a presentation of the Red River Parish Health Unit. It will be December 4th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
Basketball season is in full swing. Local teams are in action next week. Red River boys and girls play at home Monday night against Peabody. The games will be broadcast on Journal Sports website, Facebook page and local station KRRP. Riverdale Academy travels to Lake Providence on Tuesday for boys and girls games against Briarfield Academy. And those games will also be broadcast by Journal Sports.
