Lincoln Parish United
Lincoln United: Non-Profits
The Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its 1st quarter Lincoln United program to be held on March 7th at the Courtyard by Marriott in Ruston from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. The focus will be on some of Ruston-Lincoln’s non-profits and how they are helping our community.
Kristi Gustavson, Executive Director, The Community Foundation of NLA will present Community Counts; a report of pertinent information about our area regarding education, healthcare, unemployment, and poverty. The presenters following will break down how they are addressing some of the topics discussed in Community Counts.
Presentations include: United Way of NELA, Wiggin' Out, The Bridge – Community Christmas, and The Exchange, regarding how they help in our community.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
In early 2016, the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce developed the idea of Lincoln Parish United: Where We Stand as a Community. The purpose of Lincoln Parish United is to create opportunities for local leadership to communicate with one another and with the Lincoln Parish citizens. With the busy lives that most lead, it’s easy to find that we’ve lost connection with what’s going on around us. These events are intended to be somewhat of a one-stop-shop where one can get updated on current and future plans for our community. Several time per year the Chamber organizes a specific LPU Town Hall Meeting which include question/answer time.
Some of the themes which have been covered are Education, featuring a Ruston HS EcoCar Expo, New Tech Academies, LP School District, LA Tech, GSU, and LA Delta Community College; Government: Love Your City with mayors from Ruston, Choudrant and Grambling; Law Enforcement Appreciation with RPD, LA Tech PD, RFD, LP Fire, and Pafford EMS.
