Published 11:15 am Wednesday, September 19, 2012

The Vicksburg chapter of Mothers of Preschoolers has marked its 10th anniversary with more than 50 women on hand at Bowmar Baptist Church where the group meets.

In 2002, Shelly Tingle founded the chapter of MOPS after attending a meeting in Clinton. Since, more than 2,000 Vicksburg mothers have taken part in the group’s twice-a-month meetings to discuss the unexpected problems they face.

Tingle said as a young mother each day brought her new challenges and she was determined to establish a support system for local mothers.
