The Daily News believes Bogalusa is fortunate to have so many individuals and organizations that step up to provide information and services to local residents. Four of those organizations are in the news this week. Nellie Byers Training Center, which provides services to cognitively challenged residents, had an open house on Tuesday, as part of a membership drive.

The Krewe of Unity will host a free, family Night on the Town this Saturday from 6 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. in the heart of Columbia Street. And Bogalusa Rebirth will have an informational Housing Fair in the gymnasium of Elizabeth Sullivan Memorial United Methodist Church from 1 p.m. through 3 p.m. Saturday, June 17.

Finally, the Magnolia Humane Rescue group will have a spay/neuter event from 8 a.m. through 6 p.m. that day at Crossroads Clinic, 6664 Highway 43 in Poplarville, Miss. A spay/neuter, which includes a rabies vaccination, for dogs costs $65. For cats the cost is $35. Call 985-241-4290 to get on the list.
