Grand opening June 29 for new police station
A grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting to celebrate the new Holly Springs police headquarters on J.M. Ash Drive has been rescheduled for Monday, June 29.
Ribbon cutting is set for 10 a.m. and the facilities will be open for touring from then until 2 p.m., according to chief Robert Pearson.
The public is encouraged to attend the grand opening and to receive an informative tour of the new police station.
Annual picnic includes blues and barbecue
The North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic will be held June 26-27.
The annual festival takes place on an 1,100 acre site in the rolling hills of Potts Camp. The two-day event runs from noon until after midnight both days.
Local vendors offer typical North Mississippi cuisine, including barbecue, catfish, and watermelon.
The festival, the brainchild of Potts Camp’s Kenny Brown, features artists with close ties to North Mississippi Hill Country blues.
In starting the festival, he wanted to provide an event in which artists would be honored at home with the same high acclaim they experienced globally.
The picnic is run by the non-profit organization North MS Hill Country.
