Greenbriar’s got it

Published 12:00 am Saturday, August 8, 2009

So as not to interfere with the hustle and bustle of the first day of school, the Greenbriar Subdivision Neighborhood Watch Committee decided to host its annual block party observance of National Night Out 2009 on Thursday, July 30. At times during the afternoon, committee members thought they would have to postpone due to inclement weather, but when the time came, the Almighty held the rain away. 

We had wonderful support from our speakers in attendance, Warren County District 5 Supervisor Richard George, Warren County law enforcement officers Samuel Winchester and London Williams, and generous donations from our neighboring stores, Piggly-Wiggly store manager James Morgan and Fred’s Super Dollar Store manager Barry Bingham. We extend our grateful appreciation and heartfelt thank you.

National Night Out promotes neighborhood camaraderie, community involvement and law enforcement partnerships. Due to the involvement of those mentioned above and our concerned neighbors, Greenbriar Subdivision Pre-National Night Out 2009 Block Party was a success.

Book drive a success

The Women’s Restoration Shelter would like to thank everyone who participated in the book drive held at the Outlets of Vicksburg last Saturday.

For months, First Baptist Church has prepared for the event with much time spent labeling and dividing the books. The members of their church were faithful to donate books and work at the event all day and we appreciate their time and commitment to make this a success.

Of course, we would like to thank the Outlets at Vicksburg for providing the space for us to set up. We appreciate their support.

Once again our community has been faithful to support the shelter and we are so incredibly thankful for each and every one of you who bought books or donated money.
