Suzi Altman, above, hands the Rev. H.D. Dennis a framed copy of Gov. Haley Barbour’s proclamation that says March 20-26 is “Rev. Herman D. Dennis and Margaret’s Grocery Awareness and Preservation Week.” Dennis, who is a resident of Covenant Health and Rehab, was celebrating his 96th birthday Friday. Altman, a Jackson photographer, is director of Margaret’s Grocery Inc., a nonprofit group that wants to preserve the folk-art “Bible Castle to God” on North Washington Street that Dennis created.
