lmost 600 children in Neshoba County will soon see the arrival of their first book from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and coordinator Leah Stinson couldn’t be more excited.

  • A group of friends boarded an Amtrak train at Union Station in Jackson for a girls' trip to New Orleans the last weekend in July.  The unusual thing about this group of women was their long- time friendship.  They have shared a bond of friendship for over twenty years!  They went through school together in Philadelphia, and graduated from Philadelphia High School in 1993.  Although they went in many different directions, their friendship remained strong through the passing years.

That division was comprised of Hood’s Texas Brigade and the brigade of Colonel Evander McIvor Law which included the 11th Mississippi Infantry Regiment with Company D, the Neshoba Rifles. Colonels and majors huddled with captains and lieutenants, then scattered, yelling orders.
  • The Rocket into Scouting program is designed to take recruiting efforts to new heights. With a focus on fun, this program invites families in our community to experience the adventures that only scouting can offer. The program leverages an activity that kids love (building and launching rockets) while showing parents that Scouting will foster their child’s creativity, initiative, and sense of wonder.

    Sign up for Scouting by finding the pack/troop/unit nearest you!
