Everette Stubbs visits from Washington, D.C. over holidays
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Bea Green, Becky Cupp, Vivian Smith and Jacque Kazemba. They all celebrated during the holidays.
Linda Seale, Vivian Smith and Vicki Webb visited with Joyce Beck at Country Cottage in Corinth last week.
Mary Clay Brooks and children, Caitlyn and Grady, and friend Thomas Stewart went to see “We Bought A Zoo” Friday. Afterwards, they enjoyed a wonderful meal at Stix and a double doozie cookie from The Great American Cookie Company.
Everette Stubbs of Washington, D.C., was the Christmas guest of Linda and David Seale. He also got to spend time with his precious nephew, Townsend, son of Lee Ann and Ellis Stubbs, as well as other family members and friends.
May everyone have a prosperous 2012. Mark your calendars early with those very important dates. One that comes to the forefront would be the presidential election, which will be held Tuesday, November 6. If you are just turning 18 this year, be sure to register to vote. If you are already registered, be sure to mark with a big red marker November 6 on your calendar so you will not forget to vote!
Great plans for the new year
Happy New Year!
At the museum, we have great plans for this new year – 2012. One of the incredible activities planned are history tours of the fascinating history of Marshall County that will be open to the public, but reservations must be made in advance. The first tour will be following General Earl Van Dorn’s historic raid on the town, which is the most totally awesome thing that ever happened in the existence of our town. We have first passed the 149th anniversary of the Raid on the town.
We will travel by van, (buses are out of our price range) to a spot where knowledgeable narrators will reiterate what happened here. Historians should take advantage of this outstanding event and bring interested young people with you so they can then pass it on to a newer generation coming after us. We are making history every day.
The museum has been having these county tours since 1964 and each one has been a memorable event. Each tour is always different. Marshall County is so large it takes us years to make the history-round. At first we had individual cars, then school buses, then big buses, now we are back to square one; and we will use the vans.
Reservations must be made in advance and each person’s cost is $20. We are planning the tour, always on a Saturday, for January 28. However, weather can sometimes be a significant problem and if it is snowy we may have to move it to later.
My mother’s birthday was December 31, New Year’s Eve. We always had a party for her every year. Another person born on that date was Fannie Cochran, Miss Sally’s little sister. They lived together in the family homeplace west of town along with their brother. None of them ever married. Fireworks were the way to celebrate, (still is). And my mother and I went out to help Miss Fannie celebrate by taking her some flowers (or was it candy?). Anyway, when we got there the sisters were already celebrating and Miss Fannie was throwing firecrackers in the air off the porch. Fireworks were her favorite thing in the world. At the time, Miss Fannie was about 97 years old.
