Caring spirits kept good news flowing

The caring spirits of residents in the Miss-Lou last week kept plenty of good news flowing throughout our community.

Before we prepare for the week ahead, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:

  • Members of the clown ministry at Jefferson Street United Methodist Church dress up and entertain elderly residents at local nursing homes in the spirit of the Lord. Group organizers say the ministry is a fun way for the chil-dren in the church to do good deeds for the Lord. We’re always glad to see young people in the community helping make a differ-ence.
  • The Zimmerman family has received an outpouring of support from the community after a fire consumed their Vine Street house. The family lost their dog, Ladybug, and many belongings, but said they’re blessed to have not lost anything else. We thank the community for helping the family during their tough time.
  • Will Warren is just one of a few dedicated volunteers who have helped build 17 Habitat for Humanity houses in Natchez, and the crew is making progress on No. 18. The organization and its volunteers play a vital role in providing needy families with a place to call home.
  • Masks created by nearly 60 Morgantown Middle School students will be displayed as part of a contest at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians. The project was a part of the student’s art class, but also helped teach them about the significant Native American history in Natchez.

We hope your week is filled with good news for you and your family.
