|Jindal visit nears|
When Gov. Bobby Jindal made campaign stops in Winnsboro during the election in 2007, he vowed to stay connected with the people of Franklin Parish if elected to the state's top post.
True to his word, Jindal is returning on Thursday, Feb. 7 as the special guest speaker at the Winnsboro-Franklin Parish Chamber of Commerce 59th annual installation banquet.
The event will be held at the United Pentecostal Family Life Center, located at 2510 Loop Road.
According to Lindy Price, chairman of the banquet committee, tickets to the event are moving quickly and she urged those planning to attend to get tickets early. Non-members of the chamber are invited to attend.
"While we chose to have the event at the family life center because it can accomodate a large group, seating will be limited," Price said. "Tickets are available at the chamber office next to the police station. You can call and reserve tickets and then come pick them up, or just stop by and get them."
Cost is $30 per person, $180 for a table of six or $240 for a table of eight. The deadline to reserve tickets or a table is Friday, Jan. 25. Advance payment is required and tickets are non-refundable.
The event begins with a 5:30 p.m. "meet and greet" reception, followed by the dinner meeting at 6:30 p.m.
Chamber officers for 2008 will be installed at the meeting, including president Kevin Cobb, vice president Lindy Price and secretary-treasurer Emily Arnold.
