A Celebration of America event took place in the Lamar County Courthouse parking lot in downtown Paris on Saturday. The program was led by Robert Black, president of the Association of Lamar County Republicans, and featured Congressional candidate Floyd McLendon as the keynote speaker.
Paris High School Principals thanked their staff for their continued dedication to the students this past year. Each staff member came to the school on Wednesday to pick their gift up in a drive-thru. They were given a “#quaranTEAM” T-shirt and a packet of Extra gum for being extraordinary.
