SHREVEPORT, La. - Normally this time of year, members of Rho Omega and Friends are busy preparing for their annual Let the Good Times Roll Festival.
Due to concerns over COVID-19, this year's event is cancelled, but the mission behind the good time event remains.
Festival organizers are committed to their goal of raising funds for the fraternity's community outreach programs.
