Christmas party a huge success
Last weekend, the Clydesdale Christmas party was held. Everything was a glowing success - the crowd was wonderful, the food was very tasty and the auction items were well worth it! A big thank you goes out to all who support this worthy cause, as everything goes back to help those in need in our area. A big thank you to Ronnie and Brenda Luther for spear-heading this endeavor. They are true gems!
Happy belated birthday to Carol Jean Taylor, who flipped a number last Thursday. Happy birthday, Gran!
For the only two true blue Mississippi State fans I know...yes, State did beat Ole Miss, so they were victorious in this year’s Egg Bowl. The Bulldogs are now the reigning Egg Bowl Champions. They will hold that title until the next Egg Bowl battle next year. At the rate Mississippi State is going, they are liable to continue to hold the title. The Bulldogs have been fierce competitors this season. Tammy and Susie - there you have it...my humble blurb about the phenomenal maroon and white...
The ESCRA basketball teams, a church league, began play last weekend. Teams range in age from first to fourth grades and have all-boy and all-girl teams. They were scattered throughout the Tennessee area playing Saturday. Congratulations to the teams that won and to those who didn’t, y’all will get them next time!!
Nancy Fant Smith of Franklin, Tenn., attended the Belles and Books luncheon on Saturday, along with the “Doxey Girls.” There was a large crowd who gathered at both the 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. seatings at the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery. It is a grand time for visitors to our city to take a look around the gallery and at all of the beautiful paintings. It is also a fun time by those who both participate in the Belles and Books Club and attend the luncheon.

Christmas tour successful
Eureka! Our great Christmas tour is over!
And all the hundreds were the loveliest people in the world!
On Monday, before the tour, the weather forecast was for snow on Saturday morning. In desperation, I said, “Oh Lord, please spare us the snow.” And He did! He sent it south of us and give us two beautiful days.
It doesn’t matter how cold it gets, as we expect, and even welcome, the seasonal cold, but we do like sunshine with us to show us the way.
We had folks from as far away as Vermont and California and lots from Tennessee and Oxford.
The Christmas houses were incredible. They were decked out in Christmas splendor and all of the folks enjoyed them.
We sponsored two concerts at the Presbyterian church, the Holly Springs - Marshall County “Sound of Music,” when the talented Gill family and the fantastic Patriot Performers both presented concerts and both were wonderful! The bells were still ringing when we ended Sunday afternoon.
Thanks to all our contributors, our supporters and the great people who live here. It was well worth the effort!
Come see us at the Marshall County Historical Museum. We’re here every day.
