Fireworks dazzled locals last week

Miss-Lou residents celebrated the Fourth of July with a dazzling fireworks display over the Mississippi River and some continued their celebrations on Lake St. John for the annual flotilla.

Let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:

  • Hundreds gathered on Lake St. John Saturday for the annual boat parade. The Krewe of Lake St. John wound up taking home the award for best overall entry with its boat that re-created a floating water park. Congratulations to all those who were recognized for their boat decorations.
  • Teenagers from the Jefferson Street United Methodist Youth Fellowship completed their annual Mission-fest this summer as they worked on various mission projects for individuals and charities. The group helped various organizations including Habitat for Humanity, the Natchez Stewpot and Watkins Street Cemetery. We’re glad to see young members of the community getting involved to help others.
  • Ferriday Garden Club President Lena Bateman is looking for ways to spruce up the area with several gardening and outdoors projects. Bateman has played a vital role in improving the town’s green spaces through her work with the garden club. We thank Bateman for her hard work and dedication.
  • Adalyn Boyd and Mallory Lancaster will be marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year after being selected as All-Americans during a cheerleading camp. The two are also hoping to raise enough money to travel to London for a New Year’s Eve parade. We congratulate the teens on their achievements and wish them safe travels in November

As we prepare for another week in the Miss-Lou, let’s not forget to continue celebrating our independent and American pride throughout the entire year.
