ETC… for February 23rd



The windy conditions lately remind me of the old saying that March either roars in like a lion or sneaks in like a Lamb. Looks like we may have a lion about to roar in. Unless the current rains wash away all the huff and puff.

March is National Nutrition Monty. The parish health unit will be celebrating with a special open house and program on March 26th. So mark your calendars for the last Monday in March.

The Journal noticed workers planting veggies at Ed Lester’s on River Road the other day. That reminds me that the Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program is taking applications for 2018. You can apply at the Council on Aging.

Monday, February 26th is the “Last Monday” breakfast for men in the community. It will be held at McLemore Hall of First United Methodist Church. All men are invited, it’s not just a Methodist thing. The group is now planning spring projects to better our community. The menu is something with bacon. So all men will be attracted by the menu.

Time to remind you of the public bodies that hold regular meetings each month. The police jury starts the month off with it’s regular meeting on Monday March 5th. It will meet on the 3rd floor of the courthouse with committee meetings at 6:00 pm and the regular meeting at 7:00. The school board will meet the following Monday March 12th. That is at the board Administration Building on Alonzo Street at 6:30. And the town council meets on Tuesday March 13th at 5:30.
