Vicksburg Living wants to feature community families and their front porches

The phrase, come and sit a spell, invites family and friends to rest and relax in the company of one another. Particularly in the South, a welcoming spot to enjoy this time of reprieve is the front porch.

Vicksburg Living, as part of the upcoming July/August edition, is searching for families — and their front porches — to be featured in the magazine.

During the past few months, not only have front porches become a beloved spot to unwind, but they also served as a means of appreciating the outdoors during shelter-in-place orders as part of the community’s response to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Vicksburg Post photographer Courtland Wells is scheduling appointments for families wanting to participate in what we are calling a “community project.” In addition to a photograph of families enjoying their porches; the magazine is asking those families, in their own words, to share what their home’s front porch has meant to them during this pandemic.

For more information or to schedule an appointment call 601-636-4545. Those wanting to participate can also use the following link to register. Visit https://forms.gle/d4E74PNwMFpAAEMu7 to select a date and time.
