Mary Reid School faculty, students and teachers had a great time at their Octoberfest on Thursday of last week. Students, with the help of teachers and parents, enjoyed playing games, wearing their favorite costume, and going door to door to the teachers’ rooms for treats. It was an exciting day for everyone.
Last week, Don and Dene Randolph traveled to Fairhope, Ala., to the old town of Point Clear, which is on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. While there they lodged at the Grand Marriott Hotel, enjoyed shopping in the quaint little stores, and also enjoyed the good food. They said all of the buildings in the old town are original; however, the shops are modern. It was an enjoyable trip, they said.

Bobby and Katie Smithwick attended the annual Benton County Forestry Field Day on Saturday, Oct. 26, at the North MS Branch Experiment Station in Holly Springs. There were four forestry-related tours throughout the morning with specialists on hand to present a program and answer any questions from the landowners. Dr. John Kushla, Forestry specialist at the North MS Research and Extension Center in Tupelo, was the keynote speaker. There were also several arts and craft booths with items for sale. Bobby is the president of the Benton CFA and has been for several years, but will turn the gavel over to another landowner at their final meeting before the end of the year.
Following the funeral of her cousin, Moise Bean in Corinth on Monday, Oct. 28, Annie Ruth Stone and family stopped in Blue Mountain for a pleasant visit with Betty Hearn who is now back to teaching at Blue Mountain College.
Halloween night was very busy on our street. Usually the steady stream of children begins around 5:30 p.m., but this year they came a little later, due to the rain that we had all day. It finally stopped in time for the goblins, spooks, etc. to go trick or treating. For about an hour and a half we had many children stopping by to collect their treats. My neighbors across the street, the Kimbroughs, had a Halloween party and they were all decorated for the occasion. We all finally turned out the lights around 8:15 p.m. Everyone stopping by seemed to be having a great time. Even some of the parents wore costumes while they made sure their little ones were safe while they went door to door.
Margaret Hart and I visited with Nancy Lane at her home in Waterford on Friday, Nov. 1. Margaret carried a delicious lunch consisting of stew, cornbread, hummingbird cake and tea.
Katherine Greer Sundstrom and Betty Scott attended a Halloween party last Saturday night. Everyone took food and played Bingo during the evening and had a great time.
Christmas is just around the corner. I have been watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel which began this past Saturday evening. That makes me remember and miss Mama who also enjoyed the holiday movies. Each year I would get out my VHS tapes and we would watch our favorites. Some that she enjoyed were Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Little Match Girl, and Christmas Eve.
