Spring Pilgrimage is looking up

Published 12:01 am Tuesday, April 2, 2019

Pilgrimage is in full swing and organizers say beautiful springtime weather is helping draw increased numbers this year.

A statement that is true as anyone who has been in town the past few weeks can attest just by observing the beautiful blue skies, balmy weather and numbers of tourists roaming the streets throughout downtown Natchez.

The great pilgrimage turnout is good news, indeed.

Below we offer some of the other good news items from the past week.

* The Natchez-Adams School District recently honored teachers, classified employees and parents of the year, including Jamal McCullen, the district’s teacher of the year.

Teachers, school employees and great parents are important part of any community, and we are proud of this year’s honorees.

Congratulations, all!

* Natchez firefighters’ quick response to an early morning fire at Gamberi Feed & Farm Supply, 2 Morgantown Road, likely saved the business from significant damage last week.

A thanks also goes to an alert passerby who noticed the fire at approximately 5 a.m. and called 911. Good work by all in saving a great local business from what could have been a disaster.

We look forward to more visitors in Natchez as Spring Pilgrimage rounds out its final two weeks, and we’re sure more good news will blossom in this gorgeous spring season.
