Letters to the Editor
Thank you from MS First Lady:
(Editor’s Note: The following letter was sent to Sarah Sawyer, executive director of the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce, following the recent groundbreaking for Cargill Animal Nutrition.)
Thank you so much for the beautiful piece of Marshall pottery and the stand to display it. There is so much talent in Mississippi, and Sheri Marshall is certainly an example.
It seems that things are really happening in Byhalia if the events of this week are any indication. Congratulations to the Chamber for your fine work.
I sincerely appreciate your thinking of me with such a lovely gift.
Welcome to Holly
We finally have a “Welcome to Holly Springs” sign! The City Beautiful Committee has been working for two years on this project. With the help of numerous volunteers, donations, local merchants and city government, the sign became a reality. I have received many positive comments.
I would like to thank Beverly Brown, Tim Liddy, Chelius Carter, Bill and Joan Fitch, Barry Ray, Joe Hurdle, Harold Murphy, Old Mississippi Brick, Holly Tool and Dye, Marshall County Lumber, A2Z Printing, the VFW, the Tourism Bureau and Mayor Andre’ DeBerry.
The sign is something the entire community can be proud of. We have other beautification projects underway. If you have any suggestions or would like to volunteer on the committee, give me a call at 252-8855 ext.110.
Thanks to Sue Watson:
Thank you for publishing the Holly Springs Primary School news.
Special thanks to Ms. Sue Watson for the pictures. Your support to our school has been great.
Community involvement is necessary and needed to move our school forward. I look forward to working with you all again this upcoming school year.
Thank you for supporting the activities and banquet of the 4-H Celebration Day. We could not have done it without your support. Everything went as planned. Several groups were on campus for the taping. The tape will be submitted to the Bobby Jones Gospel Hour.
The 4-H Banquet was well attended. Lemon Phelps, Extension agent for Marshall County, was our speaker. Russell Johnson, alderman for the City of Holly Springs, presented plaques and scholarship money to three graduating seniors – Rosemary Hicks and Sidney Govan from Holly Springs High School and Elton Wells from Byhalia High School. Recognition was also given to the members of the Eddie Lee Smith 4-H Club, the Lessye Lee Davis 4-H Club and the Monroe Hill 4-H Club; all the children received certificates.
Entertainment for the banquet was provided by Dominic Nunnally and his group and the Shay Brown Dancers and Shay Brown. We would like to take this time to thank Shay Brown and her dancers for an outstanding performance. If you are interested in contacting Ms. Brown, you can reach her at 662-544-6797.
Next year will be even better. Please mark your calendars for the second Saturday in June for the 4-H Celebration Day.
