Will Kazemba celebrates birthday
Heather Yates arrived from Salt Lake City, Utah, on Wednesday with her son, Devlin to spend Pilgrimage with her parents, Jim and Sandy White. She attended “Montrose Under the Moonlight” on Saturday night. Heather and Devlin returned to Utah on Tuesday after a wonderful weekend visiting with friends and family.
Vicki Swords and Diane Dickerson just returned from a restful and relaxing vacation in Sandestin, Fla. On Saturday, the duo travelled to Biloxi, for a prosecutors conference.
Saturday night, the china was rattling all over town from the music provided by The Diggs during Montrose Under the Moonlight. Band members Steve Elgin, Jody Jones, Randy Allen and Tom Harris showed the packed crowd why they were there - to rock it out! They played songs that everyone knew, even some Diggs originals which were even better! The dance floor stayed packed with ages young and old and in between! They did not miss a beat - it felt like a true rock concert, lights and all! Before they began their first set, Pilgrimage queens, Caitlin Callicutt and Regan Murphy, and their escorts, Will Patton and Tyler Childers, enjoyed the first dance, which was a waltz.
This was a special celebration, as it was the 70th annual Holly Springs Pilgrimage. Kenny Dickerson and his crew supplied the scrumptious catfish dinner. Fabulous items were lined on tables in the back gardens for the silent auction. Reenactors atop horses rode around the grounds giving it that authentic feel. They even set up camp behind Montrose, which was more than interesting.
Record crowds came to Holly Springs over the weekend. It was so great to see the hustle and bustle on our square once again, generated by the event sponsored by the Holly Springs Garden Club. Kudos to those who worked tirelessly to provide our town and all of the tourists such a fun-filled weekend!
Beverly Fitch of Olive Branch, Christopher and Jenny Cupp of Olive Branch and Trey Langus of Mobile, Ala., were in town visiting with friends and family over the weekend.
Ann and Ben Seale were weekend guests of Ben and Robin Seale. While here, Ann displayed her beautiful artwork at the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery.
Rollie and Anne Keiffer Carson of Memphis, Tenn., were here on Saturday serving in the home of her parents, Bea and Jimmye Dale Green. Maddie Gresham of Olive Branch, also joined them. On Sunday, Emma Grace Cupp of Olive Branch, granddaughter of Becky Cupp, served both in the home of Bea and Jimmye Dale Green and also Burton Place, owned by David Person. She was joined by Townes Quinn, daughter of Theresa and Frank Quinn of Memphis, Tenn.
Hadley Gwin of Atlanta, Ga., was the guest of her parents, Laurie and George, for the weekend.
Happy birthday to Laura Wheeler, who celebrated Saturday night by being treated by her mother, Kay Wheeler, to Montrose Under the Moonlight.
Will Kazemba, son of Jacque and Mike Kazemba, celebrated his birthday Monday with his family. Happy birthday, big boy!

If you haven’t had a chance to catch a glimpse of, or purchase, the latest cookbook in town, Kitchen Offerings by the Episcopal Church Women, I highly suggest you run out and get a copy. It is not only a phenomenal cookbook loaded with a plethora of delectible recipes, it also is a good read, for those of you who may be kitchen challenged! One of Holly Springs’ finest male cooks, Billy Cupp Jr., contributed some of his noteworthy and treasured recipes, along with many other Christ Episcopal church members and former members.
It is really a treat to have Kitchen Offerings in my collection of cookbooks. I am sure the pages will be muddied up and stuck together before too long, as each page has things that are sure to get me cooking!

After World War I, in 1918, the world really changed. Women received the right to vote. Up until this time women couldn’t vote. And with this came Women’s Rights. Up until that time women’s skirts swept the floor with not even the ankles showing and many petticoats were worn. The style was long hair but in 1918, the world changed completely.
