Murder Mystery Masquerade

Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town full of scandal, blackmail and deceit. Nobody in town can seem to get along, and the local government has hidden motives for the dreadful decisions they make. The mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle, and the tickets to the event sold out in hours. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this town of gloom, but are all eagerly hunting for the perfect mask, nonetheless. You are worried what will happen this night when such toxic people gather at the Castle. You are also very concerned, as you didn’t purchase your ticket; it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why. The Main Branch of the Livingston Parish Library hosts this murder mystery masquerade on Thursday, March 23, at 6 p.m. Registration required by calling 686-4160.

The Anxious Child

The Livingston Parish Public Schools Family Resource Center will host "The Anxious Child," a Parent Academy on learning to recognize and manage anxiety in children, on March 23 at 6 p.m. at the Literacy and Technology Center in Walker. Presenter Jamie Clark will help you learn the difference between anxiety and ADHD. Is your child just a Type A personality, or does he/she truly exhibit symptoms of anxiety? Children living with high anxiety can feel excessively frightened, distressed, or worried during situations in which most children would not feel that way. Well-meaning parents and even teachers may say things such as, “Stop worrying,” or “You’re making a big deal over nothing,” which undermines what the child is actually feeling. In order to better understand your child or student, this workshop will provide you with information explaining what your anxious child may be feeling and provide you with helpful strategies to help them manage their anxiety. Registration is required, as seating is limited. To register, e-mail jennifer.rabalais@lpsb.org or call 667-1098. This workshop is open to adults only. No children. Provide your child's school and grade level when registering.
