Flower Arranging Topic Of Jr. IRC March Meeting Its springtime and ev- erywhere blossoms are beginning to dot the local landscape. Redbud, quince, forsythia, the fruit trees, violets, even the wild yellow jasmine, everything is com- ing into bloom Apropos to this time of year, flower ar- ranging was the topic of the Friday, March fourteenth, meeting of the Junior Irwin Russell Club which was held at the home of Mrs. Wettlin Treppendahl, Jr. To the delight of club mem- bers, St. Francisville artist and flower arranger extraor- dinaire Susan Woodard Kelly used roses, camellias and daffodils to create a bouquet that could be used in three ways: to carry, wrapped to give as a gift or placed in a vase. Everyone was inspired to go home and try their hand at a springtime bouquet. The menu for the after- noon included tomato aspic, chicken salad, cheese straws and tiny Bundt cakes. Cohosting the meeting with Mrs. Treppendahl were Mrs. Bob Lewis, Mrs. George Nicholas and Mrs. Overton Nicholas. The next meeting will be held on Friday afternoon, April eleventh, at three-thir- ty at the home of Mrs. Jody Sessions. - Club Secretary Wilkinson County Library System New Book Arrivals The Wflldnson County Li-frey Archer; Blossom Street brary System has recently re- Br/des by Debbie Mac~nber; ceived the following new books: Death On Blackheath by Anne Adult Books --Be Carefi~Perry;, Destroyer Angel by Ne- What You Wish For by Jef- vada Barr, Distort/on by Terri Fort Adams Women's Club Meets At Bethel The ladies of the Fort Ad- ams Women's Club held a meeting on Wednesday, March 12, at Historic Bethel Plan- tation on Pinckneyville Road.

Standing behind Mrs. ted Photo SWMFA Announces Honorees At Annual Meeting by Ernest Herndon Enterprise-Journal The Van Cleave fam- ily and Shep Crawford of Woodville won awards at the Southwest Mississippi Forestry Association annual banquet Friday at South- west Mississippi Commtmity College. Crawford received the Friend of Forestry Award, while Nancy Van Cleave re- ceived the Forest Landown- er of the Year Award along with her sons, Clifton and Christopher Van Cleave, and daughter, Clara Gambrell. Humorist Clyde Ray Webber, Jr., of Vidalia, Loui- siana, was the guest speaker. Crawford is an attorney, municipal judge for Wood- ville and Centreville, and longtime member of the SMCC board of trustees. In 1989, he began buying land and managing timber in Wilkinson County. "This avid turkey and quail hunter is always will- ing to assist landowners and timber managers and has donated his time and assis- tance to Mississippi State University Extension Ser- vice by presenting sessions on legal issues at Women in Ag trainings," said Amite County Extension Service agent Randy McKey, who presented both awards. The late Kent Van Cleave and wife, Nancy, started their company, Buffalo Wood, after moving to Cen- treville from Florida in 1965. The company operated pulpwood yards across southwest Mississippi and in Louisiana. Before his death in 1999, Van Cleave had acquired 15 tracts totaling 3,000 acres. Each Buffalo Wood tract is a certified tree farm with a written manage- ment program.. "Kent firmly believed that only through wise manage- ment -- by thinning, cutting, replanting, prescribed burn- ing and use of herbicides -- could forests reach their ulti- mate potential," McKey said. "In addition to company- owned land, Buffalo Wood, Land and Timber, through the dedicated efforts of the Van Cleave family and Jerry Hill, a 40-year employee and registered forester, continues to manage private timber tracts and purchase timber on the open market." Buffalo Wood also has hosted Extension Service and forestry association field days on its property.
