Enjoy good news before school starts

As July comes to a close, we can’t help but look back and wonder where summer went.

Things just never seemed to slow up this summer. Weeks and weekends have been full of good news, conferences and fun festivals. And last week was certainly no different.

Let’s review a few good headlines from last week.

– Scrapbook enthusiasts filled the convention center this weekend for the sixth annual Scrappin‘ on the River. This is one our favorite local tourist attractions because a local resident interested in promoting her hobby and her town created it. Congratulations to Pam Frank and family for yet another successful convention.

– Alcorn State University’s Natchez campus is now offering elementary education bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. It’s great to have the new course offerings in town, and we hope locals take advantage.

– Construction on the long-awaited Natchez Trails Project has begun. We can’t wait to enjoy evening walks on these trails!

– The Natchez-Adams School District’s annual “A Day in the District” helped make a sometimes-painful process easier Friday for dozens of parents. The daylong registration was a one-stop-shop for parents of children of all ages.

School starts in August, but we aren’t there yet. So let’s enjoy one more week of school-free thoughts!
