Love and sunshine add to good news
The week of love brought smiles and happiness to many in the Miss-Lou.
But even if you didn’t get something special from your sweetie, plenty of good news made this week special.
Let’s review some of the good news of the week.
– More than 300 empty bowls were sold at the bi-annual Empty Bowls event. Local potters crafted the bowls, which were sold as a fundraiser for the Stewpot.
– Alexa Mallory has important dreams and a crown to match. The Vidalia High School senior wants to help others through work in the medical field. We wish Mallory the best of luck, and we know she has a bright future ahead.
– The Vidalia Police Department is working to start a community watch program. Such programs are becoming more and more important in our country as communities realize that law enforcement cannot prevent all crime, particularly without help from citizens.
– Natchez is the site of another new Mississippi Blues Trail markers. The memorial to musician Bud Scott was dedicated Friday. This trail brings music lovers — and their dollars — to town.
– The first Mardi Gras parade in Vidalia was a great hit, thanks to the idea and work of a single volunteer. Thanks Cassandra Lynch for giving us another fun event.
The beautiful weather of the weekend was the perfect end to a great week.
