May showers bring local flowers

Even the threat of rain can’t stop good news in the Miss-Lou.

Weekend events carried on through light showers, heavy humidity and possible storms Saturday, and the workweek was just as fun filled.

Let’s review a few great things last week brought to us.

Judges toured Ferriday as a part of the state judging for Louisiana’s Cleanest City Contest. The welcome party, complete with cheering section, went off without a hitch. Ferriday is a winner — regardless of the final results — just for its effort.

Approximately 40 people attended the Community Alliance meeting this week, all expressing interest in making Natchez a better place to live. We are glad this group is re-forming with enthusiasm.

Seven young people have completed the requirements to graduate from the Adolescent Offender Program. These teens have been given a second chance and have shown they are willing to take advantage of the opportunity. Good luck in the days and months to come.

Ferriday Junior High School students thought a bit about their futures Thursday at the school’s annual career fair. Thanks to all the adults who visited the school to share the ins and outs of life in the workplace.

The Symphony of Garden Tours, Trinity Mayfair, the Natchez Bluff Blues Fest and the Joe Fortunato Celebrity Golf Classic kept the town buzzing this weekend. We are thankful for such great community events right in our own backyard.

May is under way, and we know it will be yet another great month.
