MAC staffers Sallye Killebrew, Special Initiatives Director, and Susan Dobbs, Public Relations Director, hit the road on Tuesday, September 21st to visit constituents in Port Gibson and Woodville. The first stop was with Tara Wren at the Mississippi Cultural Crossroads in Port Gibson. This group is doing amazing work throughout the community, from teaching master classes in quilting to having preschool kids in to learn about art.
Next stop.....Woodville! The Deer & Wildlife Festival is quickly approaching (10/9/2010) and Main Street Director, Polly Rosenblatt was busy making all of the final preparations! She did stop long enough to visit with us during lunch at The Market and to take us out to see the studio of an amazing woodcarver, Dunbar McCurley. A retired veteranarian, McCurley uses native wood to create some beautiful works of art.
It was a great day!
