Be a “Holly Shopper!”
Beverly Fitch of Olive Branch, was visiting with friends and family over the weekend.
With Christmas now just a few days away, I hope that y’all have a wonderful time and that Santa is good to each and every one of you. The joy of giving is something that is in the air all over Holly Springs. The windows are decorated all around the square with stores loaded with wonderful gifts for those special people on your list. I am sure holiday hours will apply to most places so, when you can, please be a “Holly Shopper!” Why would one risk one’s safety to go outside of our zip code when most everything on those long lists can be purchased right here in town?
Happy Holidays to one and all! (To put your news in City Personals, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; mail to City Personals, The South Reporter, P.O. Box 278, Holly Springs, MS 38635 or call 662-252-4261.
