Wave goodbye to hoop skirts, PilgrimagePublished 12:07am Monday, April 15, 2013
Spring Pilgrimage ended this week, and the hoop skirts and top hats have been put away for a few months.
Let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:
•Final Spring Pilgrimage numbers show this was the second-best season Natchez has seen in the last 10 years — coming close to numbers from 2011. We’re glad homeowners and businesses saw an increase in visitors this season, and we hope that is mirrored in September for Fall Pilgrimage.
•A handful of Adams County Christian School students is learning to document school and community events through photographs and video clips in an introduction to film and photography class. It’s good to see students given the opportunity to express their creativity through different mediums. Keep up the good work, students.
•General Andrew Jackson’s troops took to the streets and campus of Historic Jefferson College Friday and Saturday to commemorate the bicentennial of Jackson’s trek from Natchez to Nashville. We salute the re-enactors who are helping tell the history of our area.
Sunny skies are forecasted for the majority of the week, so let’s take advantage of them before April showers decide to visit us again.
