Good news adds to spring fun

February is going out with a bang, for sure.

News was plentiful last week, and thankfully, much of it was good. The weekend was a busy one, with a parade and several downtown events.

Let’s review a few of the good highlights from last week.

-The Concordia Parish Economic and Industrial Development District and the Concordia Parish School Board are preparing to start another year of the CHOICES program — putting business leaders in front of students to explain what life is really like after high school. Such business and educational partnerships are necessary, and we are glad our community has one.

– Students at all Concordia Parish Schools made a pledge to be drug-free. The students have completed coursework for the D.A.R.E. program. Congratulations to the youngsters. It’s up to all of us to hold them to that promise.

-Several area schools hosted Black History Month programs last week. It’s always great to see our students shine on stage, and we are glad teachers are working hard to make sure today’s children know yesterday’s story.

– Approximately 100 people gathered Saturday morning to cleanup Duncan Park. Thanks to all who worked!

-The Natchez Literary and Cinema Celebration wrapped up Sunday. A fun theme and great speakers made this event a special one for our community and the dozens of visitors it brought to town.

As we look to March, spring and the final days of a fun Mardi Gras season, we know the best is yet to come.
