Special thanks to speakers for last week’s Lions Club meeting! Trish Krouse Hayes, a descendant of the original Germantown Colony settlers, spoke about Saturday’s Germantown Bluegrass Festival at the Minden Fairgrounds. The event will feature an impressive lineup of musical talent. A complimentary shuttle bus will run back and forth from the Fairgrounds to the Germantown Colony Museum every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Next, Johnnye Kennon from the Webster Parish Convention and Visitor’s Commission highlighted other weekend events such as the ASA Pro-Am National Archery Competition at Camp Minden, Burn Run, Scottish Tartan Festival, and the Green Thumb Jamboree Seminar and Plant Sale. 

Tommy McGee, Louisiana Military Department Wildlife Agent at Camp Minden, provided more details on the archery competition and the site preparations leading up to Saturday’s televised event. 

It was a great weekend full of fun events in Webster Parish!
