Let The Plainsman know what's going on

We are at an interesting time as we enter the holiday season.

Because of the coronavirus, many things have been cancelled. However, other things have opened, at least in a limited capacity.

We’d love to hear what the people of Zachary and the surrounding areas are doing. So would your neighbors.

What are your plans? What holiday things are on the horizon? Does someone already have their Christmas light up?

Let us know what your club, church, school or neighbors are doing. Contact us at zachary@theadvocate.com. You can send jpg photos with information telling us who is in the photo and what is going on. Send a small story that gives us more information. 

If you want, tell us about interesting people or events that we can send a reporter.
