Don’t let the heat keep you from summerPublished 12:01am Monday, June 25, 2012
Things heated up in the Miss-Lou last week, literally. Temperatures are on the rise, and indoor activities are becoming preferred by many residents.
But there’s still plenty to do to pass the long days of summer.
Let’s review some great events and good news from last week.
• Children who attended Discovery Week at Historic Jefferson College enjoyed experiencing life like the Native Americans lived, including a great game of stickball.
• The Concordia Parish School District has sent out acceptance letters to 120 students who will be able to attend the brand new magnet school in Ridgecrest. Congratulations to those who were accepted.
• Parish students are also using the summer to complete a driver’s education course and be ready for the road. We hope they are paying close attention and will be safe drivers.
• The City of Vidalia’s Housing Fair Saturday featured a wide variety of exhibits meant to educate and entertain area residents. Hopefully local residents made the most of the information.
• St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge celebrated the great outdoors Saturday with special events, including a canoe ride, trail walks and bird watching. The refuge is a great local weekend getaway; if you haven’t visited recently, plan to take a hike there soon. Just go early in the morning before the heat gets the best of you.
Temperatures won’t likely drop much in the coming weeks, so find a cool spot to enjoy the Miss-Lou.
