Marshall County Humane Society News
We hope all of you who h a v e appointments for the “blitz” at the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic this coming Sunday and Monday are getting your ducks in a row.
Since we’ll be fixing 60 animals each day. We have staggered check-in so everybody won’t show up at the same time. That makes it extremely important that you all be on time. If your appointment is at 6:20, please don’t show up at 7.
We will also need for you to pay in the morning, rather than at pick-up in the afternoon. Since it’s cash only, you may want to cash a check or go to the ATM now.
This area is so fortunate to have Dr. Johnson. Because of her we have a service not available in many more prosperous and populated areas. You can show your appreciation by being on time for drop-off and pick-up and by calling to cancel if you can’t make your appointment so another animal can have your place.
We’re sure, with your help, this weekend’s blitz will go like clockwork and we’ll have made a big dent in the unwanted pet population. 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.

Do you know who named our cemetery?
The late, beloved John Mickle, in one of his priceless recollections of the past, tells us: “Just behind the hill crest lie the plains of peace.” The name Hill Crest was suggested by the late Helen Craft Anderson on July 14, 1905. At eight o’clock in the evening a group of friends was waiting on a funeral cortege, which had been delayed. They stood on the crest of the hill and moonlight flooded the valley and hills. The lines of the poetry came to Mrs. Anderson’s mind. “This cemetery should be called Hill Crest,” she said to C.H. Hurd, then editor of The South Reporter. He said he would advocate it and it was officially adopted shortly thereafter.
