Where in the ArkLaTex is Rick Rowe? That is the feature that the popular anchor for KTBS – TV in Shreveport does each week and on April 11th the answer is he will be at the Jackson Parish Museum (JPM). The public is invited to attend the live broadcast that will promote the history of Jackson Parish and the additions that the JPM has incorporated over the past year. There will also be a recording of the event on the Rick Rowe Facebook page.
Museum Board President Barbara Johnson informed board members of the exciting news at the monthly meeting of the panel held on Monday, March 21st. In additional business the board acknowledged the Quitman High School Beta Club for volunteering to help clean the Museum and Johnson gave an update on the Police Jury agreeing to provide the Museum with a $7,000.00 appropriation.
Board member James Fitzpatrick stated that Woodman of the World Chapter 115 had voted to provide the museum a new vacuum cleaner after it was learned that a new, three -fold flyer about the museum had been produced and that quotes for landscaping work would be sought. The meeting closed after President Johnson informed the board of the time that volunteer Randy Layfield has spent and expressed her gratitude for his help.
