A page of pictures was passed around with many 'before and after' scenes of various  locations in Rusk showing how just a little upkeep can make a difference.

Rusk citizens are asked to please help by making a donation of $1, $2, or $5 to your water bill each month.

Recently Rusk Lions Club Scholarships were given to Alex Perry, Haley Fourd and Raysha Sadler.

Jeannie Pyler who is a well known gardener with our area spoke to us concerning how beautiful flowers help to upgrade your home, especially roses.  She said the flowers not only add beauty to a place, but also add a sweet smell.  We realize that Tyler is known as the City Rose Garden of Texas and we are very proud of them, however we should strive to become a flower city as well.  We enjoyed the program.

Please visit our Lions Club any Thursday at noon on Hwy. 84 W.
