Finally, the wet spell has ended for a while. The sun will be out the next few days, especially this weekend when so much is going on around Copiah County, we could hardly squeeze it all on this week’s front page. The temperature range for this weekend’s events is from highs of mid-70s to lows of upper 40s, which is incredible.
Need a quick run-down of all that’s going on? Copiah County’s Relay For Life, which raises funds for the American Cancer Society, is scheduled for Friday night at Hazlehurst High School football field. The event began in 1997 and promises another night of fun and good food and fellowship.
The twenty-sixth Wesson Founders Day starts Friday night, as well, with performances by gospel groups, and continues all day on Saturday. The grand finale is Saturday night at the Old Wesson School, featuring tailgating, music and fireworks.
The Copiah County Farmers Market opens on Saturday, also. The venue has changed to the lot on Hwy. 28 near Sweat Pea’s 66, giving it more visibility, though we hated to see it leave downtown. Such are the times. . .
Copiah Academy’s annual Gala is also Saturday night at the new Joe L. Johnson Community Safe Room, which is growing in popularity.
Get out and enjoy any or all of these events this weekend!
