Have concerns? Don’t just talk, do!

Complained about Natchez lately?

Today is your chance to stop talking and start doing.

The Community Alliance — a pre-existing group — is re-forming this afternoon at an open meeting.

Membership in the group is free and requires only a positive attitude.

The alliance is composed of local leaders and residents interested in doing something good for the area. Previous projects have included planting of magnolia trees along U.S. 61, the completion of Madison Street park and the restoration of the veterans’ memorial at Memorial Park.

One project on the agenda for discussion today is supporting the Christmas in Natchez — City of Lights effort begun by volunteers last year.

But the list of city improvement projects will only be limited by the number of willing workers.

Anyone out there with a love for the community and a few good ideas — sometimes known as complaints — should consider joining the group, but only if you’re ready to turn your problem into a solution.

Today’s meeting will be used to gauge interest and establish group leadership.

The meeting will be at 4 p.m. at Bowie’s Tavern. If you can’t attend but are still interested, contact Community Development Director Darlene Jones at 601-445-7521.

Groups such as this one are essential to making our community tick. It’s great to see the alliance coming back to life.
