Ruston + Christmas = Community Fun

The Ruston Fire Department sent out this notice about the upcoming holiday events in town. Mark the calendar and join your neighbors for some great fun!

Tree Lighting Ceremony:
The Town of Ruston will be celebrating the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony Saturday December 8th at 5 PM (51st and Winnifred). Everyone had a great time last year, so don’t miss out on this year’s festivities! You can also bring along any new unwrapped toys or non-perishable food donation.

Toy and Food Drive
The Ruston Fire Department is teaming up with local food banks and Toys For Tots for this year’s charitable outreach. We’re making it easier to donate, by picking up any non-perishable food items and new unwrapped toys right from your doorstep. Just place the clearly marked items on your doorstep on December 15th by 1 PM and the firefighters will pick this up. You can also bring your donations to Town Hall. Any special needs or provisions for local residents can be mailed to All information will be kept confidential.
Santa Run: 
We’ve just received a telegram from the North Pole that Santa will be making an appearance at Town Hall on Saturday December 15th from 10 to 12 PM. Please be sure to bring the whole family down for treats and a “wish list” meeting with Santa.
