Mardi Gras and market

Rained washed out the Clinton Mardi Gras parade, but it has been rescheduled for noon Saturday. Saturday is also the day for the Clinton Community Market, so plan to enjoy both near the Courthouse Square.

Ducks Unlimited

Some tickets will be available at the door Thursday  for the Feliciana Ducks Unlimited Banquet at the Old Clubhouse at The Bluffs. The event begins at 6 p.m. It's $45 a person or $65 a couple. Ages 17 and under are $15. Cost includes dinner, drinks and a one-year Ducks Unlimited membership.

Warning calls

West Feliciana Parish Councilman Mel Percy, District C, said in an email, "It has been brought to my attention that some of you did not receive the robocall regarding the precautionary water advisory."

Percy said that to receive advisories from the parish, residents must have a phone number registered with the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Department. These advisory calls are issued by the parish government or other public entities and are the only mass contact method available to residents, he said. 

To register, call dispatch at the Sheriff’s Department dispatch at (225) 784-3136. Residents will have to give their name, address and the phone number where the advisory calls should go.

The Feliciana Tennis Classic, to benefit the West Feliciana High School tennis team and improve the school tennis courts, will be March 23-25 at the West Feliciana Sports Park.
