Happy Thanksgiving!!! I wish you a blessed holiday season. After this weekend the countdown to Christmas begins!!
It’s already looking a lot like Christmas in Forest, Mississippi.
The candy canes are back… and Jean Palmer’s family, son Scott Palmer and daughter Carol Palmer Threadgill, and so many others in the community are delighted that the City of the Forest has been able to use the decorations that have been loved here for generations! ! As one of our nostalgic readers said, “Precious memories! What a wonderful tribute to your parents, Charles and Jean Palmer, to share with the town!” The candy canes are a precious piece of Forest’s Christmas history as we look forward to entering the blessed holiday season.
I enjoyed meeting several mothers and daughters attending Episcopal High School for the 121 year grand rivalry game against Wood Berry. (EHS won!!)
A bit of particular interest to some Forest people would be Newton, Mississippi, related friends, Ashlee Todd and daughter Kathryn Taylor Todd, who were among the visitors from Birmingham. Ashlee’s parents, Bob and LaNita Douglas, still live in Newton. Little world. They are all still lamenting the loss of the Burns Clothing Store – so are we!!
We are sorry to learn that Nathan Robertson, grandson of Linda Risher, was hospitalized for several days and at the time of receiving this information the cause was unknown. It has something to do with his immune system and affects his spine. Please think of Nathan and his entire family as they continue to seek additional answers and healing.
Please send us your news to [email protected] We are happy to hear from them.
