From Anja Theissen at Spring Initiative:
Dear Clarksdale & area friends,
Please join us for our 7 p. m. potluck Thursday at the 1st United Methodist Church (Big Spring building). If you’re going to Lois Lowry’s book talk (like Big Spring) at the Higher Ed Center you can come right over afterwards :-)… We will have all 3 programs there and would love to celebrate with all of you! We really don’t need a particular reason to celebrate – but it’s fall and that’s beautiful and we just like being together as a big family! Come join us – whether you can bring food or not! If you have any questions, email or call 217-979-6807.
The Care Station Annual Fish Fry is tomorrow beginning at 5:00 p. m. Charlie Estess and his dedicated crew usually hold the event during the Juke Joint Festival, but were unable to this year. The Care Station is located at the end of John Lee Hooker Lane, beside the Delta Blues Museum. The Delta Blues Museum Band will perform, and there will be picnic tables set up on the grounds. For more information or to volunteer (they always need more drivers!), call Charlie at 662-902-7335 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Delma Furniss Welcome Center will be celebrating it’s 10th anniversary with refreshments and entertainment…if you are traveling on 61/49 in the north end of the county Friday, stop by and say hello to the volunteers and staff who often provide the first “Welcome to Mississippi” that many of our guests in the Delta hear.
