Mitch and Jeanette Stone returned home last Thursday from an extended visit with their daughter Holley Muraco and family in California. While there they rode the Roaring Camp and Big Trees steam train through the Redwood Forest, visited Six Flags Discovery Kingdom where Mike and Holley are employed, went to Dixon Beach at the Pacific Ocean, and to the sand dunes where the children enjoyed playing. Mitch swam with the dolphins along with grandsons, Jordan and Colton at Six Flags. On Sunday, Jan. 5, Colton celebrated his seventh birthday with his parents, brother, grandparents, and a school friend by going on a bowling trip (where he won the games), and then enjoyed his chocolate birthday cake. Mitch and Jeanette just missed the birth of a female bottlenose dolphin at Six Flags. Mike and Holley were on hand for the birth which was a joyous occasion.
David Fuller enjoyed a trip to Memphis, Tenn., on Saturday, Jan. 11, with Jerry and Karen Green and other family members. They ate at Spaghetti Warehouse and then went to see the Harlem Globetrotters at FedEx Forum. He said the Globetrotters put on quite a show with all of their trick shots and he enjoyed it all.
Congratulations to Matt and Keri Beasley on the arrival of their third child, a daughter, Addy Kate, born at the Baptist Memorial Hospital, Union County, Friday, Jan. 10.

Officers and directors of Marshall County Forestry Association held their annual planning meeting on Thursday night, Jan. 9, in Waterford hosted by Buck and Rita Hobbs. The 2014 president Steve Gresham presided over the very productive meeting, which was attended by 21 members and one guest. Meetings, programs, activities and membership from 2013 were reviewed and goals and objectives for 2014 were discussed. In February, members will participate in Tree Planting Week activities by assisting Extension and Soil Conservation personnel in presenting programs and giving pine tree seedlings to each third grader in the county. The Association will also host a Youth Forestry Field Day and will continue to sponsor the annual Arbor Day Poster Art Contest for fifth graders in the county. The association also will pay registration and mileage for two teachers to attend Teachers’ Conservation Workshop on June 22-27 in Booneville (CEU’s are earned at the workshop). Educational meetings will be held throughout the year and an annual Forestry/Cattleman Field Day will be held in the fall. At the annual meeting in December, a silent and a live auction will be held to raise funds for the Catch-A-Dream Foundation to help send children with life- threatening diseases on a hunting and/or fishing trip. (Note: If teachers are interested in attending the Teachers’ Conservation Workshop, contact the Marshall County Extension Service for registration forms).
Also, at the February 4 meeting of Friends of the Library, the program will be on Catch-A-Dream. Held at the Marshall County Library in Holly Springs, the program will begin at 11:30 a.m. and everyone is invited to attend.
