I was so proud of the way Mississippi handled ourselves with the latest flag issue. Our legislature and lieutenant governor really got busy working on how to make it work to retire our state flag. Here are some of my favorite quotes and wonderful articles that I read and really loved! I’m not sure who said these things on the floor of the house or senate but they made an impact on me.
“We’re not erasing our history but affirming our future..”
“Vote today for Mississippi of tomorrow “
“A politician thinks about next election..but a statesman thinks about the next generation. “
The park features boating, waterskiing and fishing on 28,000-acre Enid Lake, 83 campsites, 13 camper cabins, visitors center ( pictures of my grandfather) , 18-hole disc golf course, 18-hole miniature golf course, picnic area, beach volleyball and a 2.2-mile nature trail. One of our family traditions is putting out and checking the trotlines.
Our Family stays in the camper cabins. You have to reserve cabins 2 years in advance. We usually have all 13 rented. Mississippi state parks have been closed for about three months due to Covid. They re-opened at the beginning of June and we were able to have our _Family reunion three weeks later. Everything was outside so thankfully we were all safe.
This is a tradition with our family that goes back probably 50 or so years.
