Thanks to the Paris Area Arts Alliance, Lamar County students experienced a world-class traveling prehistoric exhibit of dinosaur fossils held at North Lamar High School.  The 300 foot exhibit, known as “Dinosaur George”, features the earliest life forms of creatures from the ice age and animals from almost every time period and continent including those from “Prehistoric Texas”.   In addition to North Lamar, students from Paris, Chisum, Roxton, Prairiland, Detroit, Rivercrest and Central Day School were on the two-day tour schedule.  The exhibit remained opened Thursday evening for the community.
