Fall heralds good news for Miss-Lou

Published 12:05 am Monday, October 12, 2015

Fall is in the air, and so is good news in the Miss-Lou. Let’s take a moment to remember some good news from last week:

4October is a designated month for raising awareness on two important issues — breast cancer and domestic violence. Last week, Natchez shined a light on both. The week began with Zion Hill Baptist church releasing pink balloons in support of those who won their battle against breast cancer, and remembering those who lost the fight. On Thursday locals donned their best purple ensembles for the Purple Dress Run, which raised domestic violence awareness and money for the Shelter for Battered Families in Jackson. The Miss-Lou has a caring heart, and that heartbeat was extra loud last week.

4Vidalia and Natchez high schools took to the streets Friday for their annual homecoming parades. Students and alumni alike were able to enjoy in the festive activities and share some school spirit. We thank all community members who came out to take part in the excitement.
