Here is your Tuesday Livingston Parish News: 

PARDS preparing for onslaught of campers, swimmers, and ball players… as well as new dogs parks

PARDS has turned into a machine.

Especially over the summer.

Recreation District 3, dubbed ‘Parks and Recreation District 3,’ provides a place to hang out and play for over 1,000 local kids every summer. 230 employees make sure that the programs and facilities run smoothly during the hottest months of the year, when the park is most popular for the kids.

‘Honoring our fallen heroes’ | Dozens gather at Evergreen Memorial Park for annual Memorial Day service

Charles Durand III didn’t move a muscle.

While Vance Sutton spent nearly 15 minutes calling out the names of “our fallen comrades” from Livingston Parish over the last year, Durand stood straight as an arrow, arms to his sides, face staring directly ahead.

For Durand, an eight-year serviceman in the U.S. Army who once served in Iraq, this was about showing respect.

Mother and her two daughters named teacher, students of the year

The White family took home all the awards.

The only problem will be deciding who gets the top shelf.

Heather White and her two daughters Sylvia and Caroline were honored as teacher and students of the year at their respective schools during the 2018-19 school year.

Livingston Parish Library to kick off summer reading program May 28

This summer, the Livingston Parish Library is taking patrons out of this world.

The library system will open registration for its annual Summer Reading Program with launch parties at all five branches from 10 a.m. 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28.

The program aims to engage children, teens and adults throughout the summer and help them avoid the “summer slide” by offering fun and educational activities, as well as reading challenges for them to participate in.
