Jane and Charlie Farris attend football game; also enjoy wine and cheese party in Brock home
Once again, Holly Springs and the surrounding communities banned together to help a neighbor in need. The rain did not deter many from going out to the VFW Saturday to support Morgan Shaw and her family.
As always, Ronnie Luther and his crowd at the Clydesdale Christmas Store turned out in mass ready to lend helping hands. Tommy Woods’ crew on the smoked Boston butts had folks lining the parking lot to pick up orders or place one.
Kenny Dickerson was there frying up that famous fish, served with his ever-so-savory coleslaw. Baked goods, both whole and individual, were donated by wonderful cooks from all over the county.
I would personally like to thank the ladies of the Belles and Books for their support in helping with the effort by baking and manning the “sweet treat” tables!
The musical line-up was stellar and, although the rains came, kept going until the witching hour. A former local, John Barnett, performed a wonderful set right after the rain subsided. His music and voice are so soothing and set a fantastic pace for the rest of the night. Kenny Brown, a local favorite, wound things up with his infamous blues. My two children just could not wait to get an earful of his music!
It is a beautiful thing to see our community pull together and work as a team. Congratulations to all who worked so very hard to make this endeavor a success!
Jane and Charlie Farris returned Sunday from a weekend in Jackson where they attended the Saints-Colts football game. On Friday night, they attended a wine and cheese party at the home of Ann Brock, which honored several past owners of the Saints football organization.
Christopher Cupp and daughter, Emma Grace, of Olive Branch, spent Thursday afternoon with his mother, Becky Cupp.
Charlie Douglas and children, Caroline and Chandler, of Starkville, spent the weekend with his parents, Leigh and Dick Douglas.

Labor Day...the first day of school
Labor Day was to us kids the first day of school. Nobody celebrated it, no businesses closed for it. We considered Labor Day a northern holiday but actually it has been around since 1883.
