Busy Weekend Ahead in Winston County!!

This weekend will be one of the busiest of the year here in Winston County. Starting on Thursday evening at 6:00 pm, the annual Chamber Banquet will be held at the Market Café on Main Street. Tickets may still be available. Local businesses, organizations and individuals will be honored for their efforts throughout the previous year. Contact the Chamber Office at 662-773-3921 for more information.

 Activity continues on Friday morning at 10:00 am as the Winston Medical Center opens its doors

for the first time with a ribbon cutting ceremony. It was three years ago to the day that Winston County, Louisville and the WMC were devastated by an F-4 tornado. The public is invited to attend.

Saturday morning starts early with the Kids N Kats Fishing Rodeo at Legion State Park. Registration starts at 7:30 am.  The Rodeo is open to kids from 4-14 and children must be accompanied by an adult to participate. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be provided.

When the Rodeo is over, drop by Ivy Park for the Pilot Club’s Safety Town Event. It is free to all Winston County kids, aged preschool to eighth grade. The fun and information starts at 10:30 and ends at 1:30. “Safety Town” provides young people from preschool to junior high the opportunity to get inside and examine a police car, fire truck, ambulance, and medi-vac helicopter; and also, to watch beneficial demonstrations. They can learn about gun safety, hunting safety, swimming safety, weather safety, and much more. There may even be a special guest or two.

Wrap things up and head on down to the Mars Hill Volunteer Fire Departent at 6:00 pm and participate in the Ms. Loggers Association “Log-A-Load”Auction. Proceeds go to Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children. Fish and chicken plates will be available from 4:00 pm.

After a long day, head on home, put your feet up and remember how blessed we are to live in Winston County!!
