School is Back in Session and the Goldonna Wildcats are Busy!

The Goldonna Elementary-Junior High School is very proud to announce that they have graduated another class in the DARE Program. Deputy Hobley with the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office was on hand to congratulate the students and present them with a shirt for their success.

The Village of Goldonna is very proud to report that Killingsworth Road and Godwin Road are the beneficiaries of road resurfacing with the newly collected sales tax funds. Sales Tax collections began July 1, 2021 and all of the money is dedicated to road repairs. They have collected a little over $11,000 and it is being reinvested.

Mayor Jennifer Smith would like to thank the Natchitoches Parish Government for their efforts in assisting with the road repairs. “Crew members, Dustin Hightower and Marty Cheatwood have been really instrumental in coordinating the recent work.”

This past Sunday was one of the quietest Sundays in Goldonna history. All of the churches were closed, without live services, due to the rising cases of COVID. All three churches had a high number of illness and absences.

Pastor Timmy Harris from Goldonna Assembly of God wanted to share a few words of encouragement with the community.

“It saddens me to say the least, that no live services were held in the town of Goldonna due to seasonal illness and COVID. Please know, the gates of hell will not prevail against the church. Jesus is the one who declared it so and his promises are yes and Amen. My prayers are with all who are sick and or affected by COVID, this too shall pass.”

Goldonna Assembly of God will be having outdoor drive up church this Sunday January 23, starting at 11:00, all are welcome.
