MATHISTON — “Alone, we can do so little, Together, we can do so much.” Helen Keller
These words by Helen Keller could very well describe the 2019 Mathiston Mulberry Fall Festival, which was Nov. 8 and 9. For, several people got together weeks ahead and planned this event.
There is an old story about evangelist Dwight L. Moody upon his return from a tent revival.
Dr. Moody told someone, “Two-and-a-half people were saved,” which made people ask, “Do you mean two adults and one child?”
Dr. Moody replied, “One child and one adult.”
A full house turned out for the Ivan Parker concert the night of Nov. 1 at Crossway Church on Highway 9 South in Eupora.
Crossway Church, pastored by Chris Ray and Associate Pastor Brandon Cole, had planned and promoted this event for weeks.
How many times have you been sitting around talking with friends and heard one say, “I wish our supervisor would pave my road or maybe patch some bad places on it”?
Maybe you have even heard, or even said, “I sure wish our mayor and board would do something about out roads and some of the eyesores we have in our town.”
MABEN — On any day, people can drive around our towns in the area and may see litter on the sides of the highways and roads.

If you had been driving by Eupora First Baptist Church the night of June 21 or happened to be driving by the Eupora Community Center on June 22, you might have thought there was a wedding, as so many people came to Eupora on those two dates.
May 25, starting at 10 a.m., the second William Golden Memorial Singing was held in Eupora.
But, this time this event was held in the Eupora Community Center on Dunn Street, which was nice and a good place to host the event.
