The Woodville Republican, Thursday, September 18, 2014 Page 3 Thanks To Shirley ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED Have you taken advan- tage of the Wilkinson County Park? Such a nice place to take your walk.., about a 7/8 of a mile walk around the lake. For senior ci ns that counts for a mile. I count it as a mile. The lake itself gives you a beautiful view; you may see a crane or ducks on the wa- ter. You can hear the crows and other birds calling to one another. While you walk you can take in the beauty of na- ture, the trees, the sky, the carefiffiy cared for grounds~ Sometimes you can catch the sight of a fisherman or two. All of this as you improve your health. What a wonderful sight our park is. Then comes Mrs. Shirley Swain, giving her time and knowledgeofplants, trees and flowers to beautify our park. As you enter the park you can see the talent Shirley shares with us. Trees and flowers greet you as you enter the park. Thanks Shirley. Under her care, the park takes on a new light. In front of the main building there are new flow- ers in the beds. As you start your walk you are welcomed with flowers that Shirley has planted around the trees. Shirley has a flare for bright- ening up the landscape and your day. Not only that, but she greets all walkers as they Mr. and Mrs. Turk Tynes liman Institute in Clinton. pass by her, sending those CONCORDIA BANK APPRECIATES senior citizens on their way ............... of Clinton, Louisiana, are She attended Louisiana with a smile And, I am told TI-I~II t;U~TO~EI~S -- All seven lo- this week announcing State University and is a by others, tt~t she also greets cations of Concordia Bank and Trust, the engagement and ap- graduate of Baton Rouge proaching marriage of their Community College School allwalkers with a smile and a including the Main Street, Woodville daughter, Taylor Marie, to of Nursing.
