Woodville Civic Club News by Ernesto Caldeira Websitc: www.historicwoodville.com Email: info@historicwoodvflle.com 1st EDITION ALMOST SOLD OUT. PLANS FOR 2nd EDITION UNCERTAIN THE PLANTATION .WORLD OF WILKINSON COUNTY 1792-2012 At the recent board meeting a report was made on the success of the November 2013 printing of the plantations book written and produced by Stella Pitts and Ernesto Ca]deira as volunteers and printed by McComb Printing Company and distributed by the Civic Club. The Benefactors, Spon- sors, and Donors brought in $19,300 in contribu- tions; sales of one thou- sand books have brought in close to $60,000; and the expenses of printing, donations to libraries, advertising, and post- age and handling totaled $41,130.74. The net profit to the Civic Club has been ap- proximately $38,169.26. Since we have not had a fundraiser since our last Antiques Show and Sale in 2012 . . . the profits from the book kept our buildings and our projects going for almost three years. Members of the Board have been exploring the options available for keep- ing this valuable book in print. A second edition of 1000 books can be deliv- ered for $30,208.81. It is hoped that either donations for a second edition or outright in- terest free loans, which would be re-paid from the first sales, might be ar- ranged because the orga- nization hesitates going into to debt to keep it in print.

The church also donated a collection of personal hygiene items to the Woodvi]le facility. The fun and collection were made possible through the xngregation's Christmas in Au- gust missions project %Ve are very gratefial to Pastor Rob Muncy and WBC for their hard work and gen- erosity," said Chaplain Roscoe Barnes HI. 'When they heard of this project and our need for support, they immediately stepped up to the plate. We believe this important act of kindness can have a tremen- dons impact on the lives of our men behind bars. We sincerely hope that other churches Hill follow their example." The Mississippi Depart- ment of Corrections allows the fadlity to provide care packag- es or 'oersonal hygiene items" during the Christmas holiday season. The items include one that can be ordered from ...... The Cotton Gin menu!" stick of clear deodorant, one bottle of clear shampoo, one bag of hard candy (30 count), and oneipair of white athletic socks. Each item should be regular size. 'lere are over 900 offend- ers at WCCF," said Muncy. "Chaplain Barnes' goal is to give a Christmas care package to each offender. I encourage the churches, businesses, and organizations in our area to join us in this effort." Nancy Payne, teacher for Mission Friends (ages 2-5) at WBC, "loved the idea and ran with it," said Muncy. He noted other groups at the church, in- eluding Girls in Action (girls lst-6th grades) and Royal Am- bassadors (boys ages lst-6th grades), also helped with the offering. All of the items were collected from members of the WBC, he said. 'roviding a care pack- age to a lonely man behind bars may be a tiny gesture of goodwill, but it can actually do wonders," said Tira Jackson, deputy warden of programs. 'Trst and foremost, it reminds him that somebody cares. It can also bring a genuine smile to a face that's more familiar with frowns and tears." 'Tes, these men are crimi- nals, but they're also fathers and sons," added Barnes. 'rhey're related to someone as brothers and husbands. Cous- ins and boyfriends. In other words, they're still human. We hope the community, faith groups, businesses, and indi- viduals, Hill help us this holi- day season. Together we can make a difference."
