Donations needed to reopen spay/neuter clinic
Many thanks to all those who came to enjoy pancakes with us this weekend. Your contributions have moved us that much closer to completing our shelter and getting our spay/neuter program back in business.
My phone is a witness to how desperately needed the spay/neuter program is.
The pancake breakfast was only a step. To finish the shelter and reopen the spay/neuter clinic we need individual donations. It would be great if very rich people would give us buckets full of money.
After all, we are a non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible. But we are realistically counting on the people who used the clinic and realized its worth. If everyone who benefited from, relied on and continues to need the spay/neuter clinic would send us five or ten dollars we’d be open again in no time.
Donations and correspondence should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635. For information on adoptions, fostering or anything else about the Humane Society call 662-564-2900.
Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean to perform at Crossroads Arena
Lady Antebellum will be performing at the Crossroads Arena with Jason Aldean in Corinth on May 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $28.50 and may be purchased through CrossroadsArena.com
Billboard named Lady Antebellum one of their “New Faces to watch in 2008” – the only country artist to make the list.
MSN Music chose Lady Antebellum to be in their “Class of 2008” listing. The Boston Globe named Lady Antebellum one of the “Eight to Watch in ‘08”. Country Weekly chose Lady Antebellum as “Who’s Hot in 2008.” Nashville Lifestyles named Lady Antebellum “the next big thing.”
The trio, which is made up of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, released their self-penned debut single “Love Don’t Live Here” in October. The group sound is described as a unique blend of harmonies reminiscent of classic country, a soulfulness of 1960s R&B, the heart-on-the-sleeve openness of 1970s singer-songwriters, all with a keen edge of contemporary country.
Lady Antebellum was formed in the summer of 2006 when Hillary spotted Charles at a downtown Nashville music spot. She recognized Charles, whose music she had been enjoying on his MySpace page. “I introduced myself and struck up a conversation,” she remembers. “He said that we should get together and write sometime.”
Three young songwriter-musicians have varied influences and backgrounds, whose blended vocals make a sound that is fresh and unique -- even while it sounds like something you’ve known for a long time. For Lady Antebellum, the ride is about to begin.
