Poverty Point site offers pottery demonstration

Visitors to Poverty Point World Heritage Site are invited to take part in a ranger-led demonstration of crafting prehistoric-styled pottery similar to the pieces which the Native Americans fashioned more than 3,500 years ago. 

The event will begin with the demonstration at 10 a.m. July 26. Afterward, visitors can try their hand at making their own pottery until 11:45 a.m.

Attendees can try their hand at creating items such as figurines, decorated artistic objects, coiled clay pots, and clay pipes – inspired by those that have been excavated from the site.

Programs encourage women to explore song

An international female singing organization is encouraging women to live “Life on a High Note,” and to help that occur, the Ruston chapter is offering four “Find Your Voice – and Sing!” sessions in July and August.

Piney Hills Harmony Chorus of Sweet Adelines International is hosting a special series of guest nights that area women can attend to see how singing can bring positive changes to your life. 

The “Life on a High Note” program indicates that you can actually find more than your voice with a Sweet Adelines chorus.
