Serenity Culture Club kick-off season
Kay Joiner and Judy B. Neal of Atlanta, Ga., were guests in Holly Springs this past weekend. They stayed in the beautiful bed and breakfast owned by the Liddys on the square. While here, they enjoyed touring around our beautiful town, as well as Oxford. It was wonderful to hear how nice everyone was to these fabulous women who picked Holly Springs to visit on a whim! True Southern hospitality lies right here and is very much alive! Hopefully, the two will be making another trip back, as they certainly enjoyed themselves and everyone enjoyed meeting with them, as well!
Collier Carlton travelled to Birmingham, Ala., Friday to spend the night with Patrick and Mary Glen Carlton. He rode down Saturday to Auburn, Ala., for the Ole Miss football game, where he spent the night with his cousin. He returned on Sunday.
Saturday the Serenity Culture Club kicked off its 2005-2008 season. Motoring by a serene mobile all the way to Memphis, the group enjoyed a delicious, home-cooked meal at the Folk’s Folly roadhouse. Served by Rose, all enjoyed a cup of coffee and songs around the piano. Dr. Ben Martin reported, “I was shocked at the level of serenity!” Ronnie and Daphne Webster, visitors from London, claimed that Holly Springs would someday be a serene city too. “They seem to be going off 24 hours a day here.” Those attending were Joe and Kathy Overstreet, Madge Lindsay, Dan and Beth Person, Houston, Ronnie and Daphne Webster, David Person, Joey Nuller and Dr. Ben Martin. “We are busy planning our next event – a New Year’s party for 2008 or maybe 2009,” said Joe Overstreet. A serene time was had by all.
