“Sounds of Summer” in downtown Byhalia August 15 included a wide array of activities. Many talented singers participated in Bad Bob’s (Bob Pickard) Karaoke. The combo “Backsliders” (above, Rev. Jim Biedenharn, Jay Biedenharn, Bob Pickard, Meredith Koch) entertained the crowd with their style as much as their music. Koch also sang two specials to a standing ovation. The TRIBE (youth leadership group) of Byhalia Middle School helped by volunteering their community service time. Byhalia Sports Association provided refreshing shaved ice. The Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce appreciates the support of everyone and the town of Byhalia employees for their assistance. Special thanks to event logo sponsors A&B Distributing, CenturyTel, Hughes Bros. Plumbing, Griffin Industries, Northcentral EPA, R&L Treasures, town of Byhalia and Trinity Missions Health & Rehab. Also, the Marshall County Republican Club sponsored a car show, which was won by Don Floyd (right). Below is Leamon Malone with his “H” tractor which he has been driving since he was 14 years old.
Marshall County Humane Society News
The Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic will be closed August 31 and September 21. If you had an appointment on either of those days and haven’t been rescheduled yet, please call 662-252-6196.
You will probably get the answering machine. Please leave your phone number! One person has left numerous messages but none included how to call him back. He’s getting steadily madder and madder and we can’t do a thing about it.
We don’t have regular hours. The number is answered by a volunteer who already has a busy life. I know you want someone to answer when you call but if you will leave your number we’ll call you back.
For information on adoptions, fostering or anything else about our Humane Society call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
