Tickets are on sale for the newly formed Zachary Artist Guild’s Evening Art Walk event on July 9 in downtown Zachary between the Chamber of Commerce office and the fire station.

More than 20 artists are expected to display and sell their works from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets are $10 each and will include hors d’oeuvres by Palmetto Grill, a sampling of some award-winning beer, wine from Feliciana Cellars and door prizes.

A bandstand with live music by L.C. Carney Blues Band and Sacred Strings Bluegrass will be set up beside the fire station.

Twenty percent of proceeds from artwork sales will benefit ZAG and the Regional Arts Council of Zachary.

Tickets are available from ZAG members, the Chamber of Commerce, the Bank of Zachary, Cottage Fine Art and Framing, LeBlanc’s Grocery and Sammy’s Grill.

The Zachary Artists Guild is an all-volunteer organization involved in the Zachary art scene.

They’re going ?

Let the record reflect, as judges like to say, that the old performing arts theater, gymnasium and a maintenance building are down to the ground on the southwest corner of Zachary High School’s campus. Demolition crews were continuing to remove the rubble this week.

With the buildings gone, you get a new perspective of the grove of live oaks out by the highway.

Charter school event

The public is invited to meet Slaughter Community Charter School Director (principal) Robert Webb and the teachers for the coming school year during a “meet, eat and greet” event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the school on La. 412 West.

Job fair planned

KPAQ Industries LLC, supported by Louisiana FastStart, the Louisiana Workforce Commission and Baton Rouge Community College, will conduct a job fair Friday at the Louisiana Building on the BRCC campus, 5310 Florida Blvd., Baton Rouge. Orientation sessions will be offered every half-hour from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The job fair will target applicants interested in both hourly and professional positions at the reopened paper mill in St. Francisville to support the mill’s upcoming expansion.

Coupons accepted

If you were one of the senior citizens who received $24 worth of coupons for fresh produce from the state Department of Agriculture and Forestry, you may redeem them for fresh fruits and vegetables at the Zachary Community Market, held from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday in the side parking lot of Zachary City Hall.

Farmers cannot give change for coupons; therefore, each purchase must amount to at least $4.
