Group of friends joins Nancy Fant Smith in celebrating her birthday recently
David Person, Kay Wheeler, Becky Cupp, Ben and Robin Seale, Ben Martin and guest, Marissa, went to Oxford on Saturday night. They were celebrating Nancy Fant Smith’s 70th birthday. They dined at City Grocery and had a wonderful time. Subsequently, Nancy was checked into the hospital due to a fall. She is recovering well in Oxford’s hospital.
Vicki Webb is recouping nicely after having had a procedure on Tuesday of this week. Get well soon!
Get well wishes also go out to Michael Seale, son of Kay Hurdle and David Seale, of Hattieburg. He is recovering from an unfortunate car accident.
The year 2007 has gotten off to a bang! I hope that everyone has a better year than last and can stick to those New Year resolutions! Let us all try to be better friends this year and help those in need.
Also, try to remember that Holly Springs is our town - we need to take care of her and keep her beautiful for those looking to move here. We have a plethora of things to offer that the big city just doesn’t - hospitality being the utmost. If you see someone you do not know on the street, someone you have never seen before, take the time to speak to them. First impressions mean a lot and nice, smiling faces on the square and beyond could just make the difference to newcomers! A friendly gesture never hurt anyone. Wave at that out-of-town driver who is poking along instead of honking wildly. Give those directions to drivers who ask you instead of shrugging them off. Let people know that we are friendly here - a real community!
Revel in the fact that there is no- where else in the world like Holly Springs. Our rich heritage, friendly square occupants (Sassy being top on that list), doctors and pharmacists you can call at all hours for help...where else would that happen? Shop locally, get involved in your community, be friendly to neighbors, as well as strangers - do your part in 2007 to put Holly Springs on the map! Happy New Year!
