Agreat time had at Blues Night Thursday up on the square
Goodbye summer and welcome fall! Mother Nature has blessed us with not only cooler weather, but rain as well. The trees will soon be changing and bonfires will be blazing. It truly makes for a wonderful Friday night, no matter what local team you are watching play! It will really feel like football season has finally arrived with the drop in temperature, not to mention being able to open your windows and let in the cool fresh air!
Beverly Fitch of Olive Branch was in town Saturday night to hear Sandor Viradi’s band play at Bo’Jangles.
The Wrecking Ball was once again a raging success. People from all around attended to help with the upkeep of Chalmers Institute. Live music was provided and many auction items were available for purchase. Congratulations to the crew who put on the ball, as it showed how much work and effort went into it.
I have never been to one of the Thursday nights on the square, as that is usually a football game night for us. Last week, the boys were off so Grady and I went up there with Grace Brownlee and her children, Dunn and Brileigh. Not knowing what to expect, I was a little apprehensive. However, once we got up there and situated, it was fabulous! People from all walks of life were congregated in one spot to celebrate the music that made our area famous. It was the best time I have had in a long time! The food venders offered an array of goodies for any type of palette. If you have not been up there, you must go before the season is finished. It is well worth it!
