Pancakes And Pajamas With Santa

This past Saturday morning, the White Meeting Room of the Winn Parish Library was transformed into a Pancake and Pajama Party venue. The Dugdemona Festival Board invited boys and girls to make reservations to wear their favorite Christmas pajamas and enjoy a pancake breakfast, story time and activities with Santa Claus.

The limited spaces sold out quickly, and the annual event is just one of the many ways the festival organizers help keep the Dugdemona Festival free for those who attend each summer.

Mrs. Katherine Grantadams To Reign As Grand Marshal Of 2017 Christmas Parade

The Winnfield Kiwanis Christmas Parade will begin at 6:00 p.m. this Friday, December 1st. When the parade rolls, the Grand Marshal float will have a familiar, friendly face riding atop the float. In recognition of the 60 years that Grantadams Dairy Maid has been in business, Mrs. Katherine Grantadams will serve as the Grand Marshal. When I met with Mrs. Grantadams, in the back of the restaurant, she gave me an insight into the history of the popular drive-in.

Back in 1957, a young bread salesman with a young wife and two small daughters at home was looking for a change. Part of his regular bread delivery route brought him through Winnfield, where on occasion, he would stop at a drive-in and have a hamburger for lunch. The owners of that drive-in began talking to Mr. Russell Grantadams about opening a drive-in of his own, and his dream began developing.

Group Works To Identify And Address Issue Of Homelessness In Winn Parish

At this time of year, as we gather with family and friends and reflect upon the many things we are thankful for, it’s important to remember that there are who will not be celebrating in a warm home, surrounded by family.

On October 17th, a group of volunteers came together at First Presbyterian Church and prepared hamburger lunches for those who were picking up boxes from the Winn Community Food Pantry. The group wasn’t only there to grill and distribute the bagged meals; they were also gathering information on the number of homeless individuals and families in Winnfield and Winn Parish. Yes. We have homeless people, right here in our community.
