Community shows support
Nancy Fant Smith of Franklin, Tenn., and Helen Doxey Tyson of Nashville, Tenn., were the weekend guests of Kay and Laura Wheeler. They were in town for the hummingbird festivities. They visited with good friends Friday night at a small gathering. It was wonderful to see the two ladies and catch up with them.
Congratulations to the Audubon Society for a fabulous Hummingbird Migration Festival! Holly Springs was infiltrated with people from near and far. It was a great weekend for our town. Everybody in town had their yards looking great and there were friendly faces everywhere you looked. A big thank you to everyone here who had a hand in another successful year at Strawberry Plains. We have a piece of paradise right here!
Wednesday night, droves of people gathered at the Marshall Academy cafeteria for Katfish for Kat. August 23, LeMarcus (“Mister” as the team fondly calls him) and Clarice Moore and daughter, Kat (an eighth grader and Lady Patriots softball team member), lost their home in a fire. Clarice was heading to an appointment when she received the call. The Lady Patriots hosted a softball game that afternoon. Kat was not told about the fire prior to the game, suited up and played ball.
This family has been through so much. It was a wonderful thing to see the support they received from the members of our community and their Marshall Aca-demy family.
Kenny Dickerson and his crew fried catfish, hushpuppies and French fries, accompanied by his delicious slaw and sweet tea, for the fund-raiser. The members of Beta Sigma Phi supplied the scrumptious desserts, which were snatched up in the blink of an eye! T-shirts were also sold with a whimsical catfish design on the backs and Katfish for Kat on the front.
The outpouring of support for the Moore family shows truly how appreciative we should all be that we have a loving community - one which supports one of their own in times of trouble. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
