It will be a busy fall for the members of the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches (APHN).
The Third Grade Children’s Tour of Historic Natchitoches will be the mornings of Sept. 24-28. “We had the most eighth graders to ever volunteer to be interpreters. They are an enthusiastic group, and we will be working with them two days a week on their roles as people in Natchitoches history. We need some more volunteers to be walkers and site sitters,” said APHN board member Anne Stevens
