Items needed for upcoming benefit yard sale

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. If you have a garden of any kind I’m sure you are busy. We can’t seem to get the leaves out of the drifts, the grass sprayed, the limbs picked up, and the soil amended. My husband started to plant some lilies by digging holes and putting them in (and I know lilies are easy to grow) but I wanted the entire area - 12 x 15’ - worked, so I mentioned, ‘please don’t do that - work the entire area, add the compost and garden soil and then plant the lilies’. Well, he didn’t like that, so he said ‘why don’t you do it your way’? So I did, and my feet sure hurt the next day. I must find a better way to approach the subject next time.

Did you see the picture of the Garrison’s yard in the local paper last week? It was beautiful.

Joe McCrady is home recouperating. Good luck, Joe. Mike Moseley is having surgery in Philadelphia the end of April. Our prayers are with you. I met a new resident (to me) last week and she was talking about the time her husband fell from a ladder, working on the house. They found him hanging by one foot. I think her name is Ruth Jackson and her husband is Donald. They live on Snow Lake Drive. She wanted to express her appreciation to those who responded to the accident. Her husband is recovering nicely. If you know of anyone who is sick or needs help please call Sue Wooley Graves, 224-3264. If you know of someone I have missed, please call me at 224-3913.

Don’t forget! We need items for the Snow Lake Volunteer Fire Dept. Ladies Auxiliary Garage Sale on May 7, 8 a.m. at the Ashland Discount Outlet on Hwy. 4. Save your discards for us. We only have a few weeks. You can take them directly to the store or call me at 224-3913. Also, on the same day we will have a bake sale at Webster’s Grocery beginning at 8 a.m. Someone will call asking for your donation of a cake - if no one calls, just call Jane Edwards, 224-3435, and tell her you want to make one. Don’t forget to buy your cookbook at Ashland Outlet or from Frances Simpson.

The Bluegrass Committee is getting in full swing for our celebration on June 25. We have three bluegrass bands - Southern Strangers, Heartland Band, Hatchie Bottom Boys and Little Country. Kay Bain from Tupelo will also be here. More details will follow. However, if you are a crafter and want to reserve a booth, please call me at 662-224-3913, Laurie Pierpont 224-0065. We will have members of the committee contacting persons and businesses for advertisements. I will be calling for volunteers to work the concessions, community center’s barbecue meals, greeters, boat parade and boat rides, parking, and etc. As I said before, you can’t hide - I will find you!

There are a lot of things going on around Snow Lake. We need volunteers for several committees. Won’t you call us at 224-3050? We are trying to form a Neighborhood Watch Program and we need volunteers.

We are looking for persons to check on the neighbors around them via phone or stopping by. They will be called ‘Block Captains.’ The next meeting will be after the town meeting on May 5, 7 p.m.
