Last call for attending the Mid South Lions Sight and Hearing Annual Auction this Friday, August 6. We have 6 seats open. This is a nice party to take your wife and enjoy a free meal and a lot of fun. Advise Lion Brad if you can attend.
Our program was given by Kelsy Dement, our 2010 Miss Craighead County Rice. Kelsy served us a sample of her Kelsy’s Big Kreek Rice Bake which was delicious. Kelsy talked about the value of the rice production and industry in our county, state, and nation. The Miss Craighead County Rice contest is sponsored by the Craighead County Farm Bureau Insurance Co. Kelsy was accompanied by her parents, Mickey and Charlotte Dement. The Dement family was named the Craighead County Farm Family of the Year in 2005. Kelsy is a senior at Westside High School and will enroll at ASU next year.
We are investigating the possibility of having a kiosk in the Mall to sell our pecans. More on this later.
