Winnfield City Council: Private Meeting, 2018 Audit Findings

The Winnfield City Council started off the year by receiving private counsel from legislative auditors at a special meeting last Wednesday, January 8.

After the meeting came to order, the agenda was amended to discard the fourth item, prison facility water rates, and to add servicing of electric department equipment as the new fourth item.

Lions: “Sponsor A Flag, Foster Patriotism”

Lions: “Sponsor A Flag, Foster Patriotism”

The “Dobber Brazzell Memorial Flag Project” is one aspect of Lions International here in Winn Parish that is truly a community cooperation endeavor. Anyone driving through Winnfield on designated flag days and/or patriotic holidays will have seen the dozens of unfurled, waving American flags lining the streets of downtown Winnfield.

The project originated as a way to raise money for the many worthy projects of the local Lions Club. A few of these causes include eye care and research, the Lions Handicapped Children’s Camp at Leesville, free eyeglasses for the needy in our area, and “Just Because” Rose Day which uses dozens and dozens of roses to cheer our ladies and nursing home residents in the area.
