Last week was busy for the Miss-LouPublished 12:01am Monday, May 7, 2012
With a busy election week and jam-packed weekend behind us, it’s almost difficult to remember what happened last week.
Thankfully, this newspaper keeps a great record of the community’s happenings so we didn’t have to look too hard to compile a list of great news from last week.
- The Vidalia Recreation District No. 3 said goodbye to its longtime secretary, Lula Mae Caldwell. Though that, in itself, isn’t good news, Mrs. Caldwell’s service to the parish certainly is. We wish her a relaxing and wonderful retirement and thank her for her work.
- Trinity Episcopal Day School celebrated Mayfest Saturday with games and fun on the bluff. The school fundraiser was a success, school officials said.
- Relay for Life was exhausting but rewarding for hundreds of local residents Friday and Saturday. We are so thankful for those who organize this great event, but also to all those who merely participate.
- Shannon Ashley, a teacher at Vidalia Junior High School, is the Concordia Parish Teacher of the Year. Great teachers are vital to our community, and we are glad Ms. Ashley is here.
- The local Master Gardeners were wonderful hosts to approximately 500 of their closest friends from around the region last week. The convention certainly made an impact on town, and we hope the gardeners enjoyed Natchez.
Summer is just around the corner, and hopefully things may slow down soon. Until then, stay cool and enjoy the Miss-Lou.
