Marshall County Humane Society News
Flea market set for Saturday; annual pancake breakfast April 21
We’ve had blackberry winter now so we can all get back to gardening like crazy.
The next couple of weeks will be big for Holly Springs and the Marshall County Humane Society in particular. The Pilgrimage will be in full swing next Saturday when the Humane Society has its annual pancake breakfast from 7-10 a.m. ($5 for all you can eat); and Second Saturday is this week, our monthly farmers’ and flea market, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., both will be held at the VFW in Holly Springs.
Is anybody missing a pet? The Humane Society has a cat and a dog who are so well cared for and friendly they must have human guardians out there somewhere. Call 662-564-2900 if you think one of them might be yours
If you need an appointment at the low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196. We are still booked well ahead for dogs but have openings available much sooner for cats. Here are a few reasons your cat should be spayed or neutered. Cats can come into heat as young as four months. Once a cat comes into heat, if it does not get pregnant it comes right back into heat until the mission is accomplished. Cats can have up to three litters of kittens a year. One female cat can turn into a whole yard full in no time at all if you don’t take positive steps.
For information on adoptions, fostering or anything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

Potts Camp News by Dale Hollingsworth
The people here are the most wonderful people in the world. We buried my loving husband L.D. on Thursday and are very sad, but prayer is helping. Relatives from out of state were amazed at the large supply of delicious food sent to our home, the lovely arrays of flowers and the vast number of friends who came.
Friends also came from near and far to Reid’s Gift Baptist Church on Thursday to say farewell to an old friend, Viola Howell. Everyone who knew Viola loved her. Members of the family met at the home of her husband, Jimmy Howell, for lunch on Wednesday and Thursday. Jimmy and Viola’s grandson signed with the Cincinnati Orioles recently.50 Years Ago - April 11, 1957
