Last week saw plenty of wonder

The Miss-Lou didn’t see snow last week, but the days were still full of wonder — especially when the sun finally came out.

Let’s review a few of the great things that happened all around us last week.

4 The Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce kicked off a soggy Monday morning with its annual legislative breakfast. Nearly all the local legislators attended, sharing plans for the current legislative session and answering questions. The crowd in attendance was strong, and we are glad that the chamber, the legislators and those who attended see the value in this type of public connection.

4 Trinity Episcopal Day School students are raising money for a variety of projects thousands of miles away. The students are collecting change for Heifer International, an organization that works in third-world countries. Some classes are purchasing animals; another is funding a water purification system. All the students are learning to care about others more than themselves.

4 The Krewe of Vidal kicked off the local Mardi Gras parade season Saturday with its Vidalia celebration. Children and adults enjoyed watching the floats roll by and collecting candy and beads. Two more Natchez parades are yet to come.

4 An area businessman is preparing to start a new Natchez festival. Guy Bass hopes the Natchez Blueberry Festival this June will be a stable fundraiser for the Natchez Stewpot and a fun event for those who attend. Eating and cooking contests will fill the day, among other games for children and adults. It’s great to see a new fundraiser get off the ground.

The week ahead should be drier than the last, with pleasant days until Friday. Enjoy the mild winter of the Miss-Lou, but don’t forget to dream of spring.
