Spring was ushered in by a busy week

Published 12:01 am Monday, March 25, 2013

Spring finally sprung last week, and the pleasant weather conditions left no excuse but for residents to be out and about enjoying the area.

Let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week.

  •  Local pianist Burnley Cook is hoping he can gather enough interest to help restore and display the old Baker Grand Theatre’s organ. The organ entertained many a Natchezian in its prime, and Cook is hoping to restore it for visitors to enjoy in the future. We hope Cook is successful in his attempts to restore a piece of Natchez history.
  •  Students in the Cathedral High School Key Club are working to create a library at the Natchez Children’s Home by collecting children’s books and other materials. If you have any used books to donate, drop them off at Cathedral school’s front office and help these students turn children into bookworms.
  • Hundreds of residents and visitors gathered at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians to celebrate the 25th annual Natchez Powwow. What started as a small gathering at the Liberty Park fairgrounds organized by Dr. Chuck Borum has grown into a highly successful and culturally significant event. We congratulate Borum and other event organizers for reaching the milestone and hope they continue celebrating for many more years.

Sunny and clear skies are forecasted all week, so let’s make the most of them as we prepare for another week in the Miss-Lou.
