First United Methodist Church held its Fall Festival in the gym on the evening of October 28th.  The gym was decorated for the occasion and filled with excited children wearing their favorite costumes.  There were various games to play, jumpers, and even a food truck!  

The event was sponsored by the Anchored Youth Ministry for children of all ages from 5:30 until 7:00.  It seemed to be a great success, judging by the noise level of excited children having fun.

The Fifth Wednesday Bridge Club met on October 30 at Dancing Rabbit Restaurant.  Hostesses were Rebecca Barnett and Susan Burt.  It was a great day for bridge.  Somehow, gathering together for a nice lunch and bridge made the dreary day seem bright and cheerful.  

After a delicious lunch, which no one had to cook, we played bridge and visited. There was much laughter as well as moans and groans over hands without any points,  

Enjoying the fun were Shirley Cox, Joyce Dansby, Marianne Enochs, Joyce Hardy, Billie Latting, Carol Oliphant, Jan Williamson, Rebecca Barnett and Susan Burt.

     Two Neshoba Central science teachers were selected to be presenters at the annual Mississippi Science Teachers Association Conference in Biloxi.  Robin Tolbert McClellan, fifth grade science teacher, and Robert Mikell, seventh and eighth grade science teacher, were honored to be chosen as part of this state wide event.  This is recognition for the great job they do in their classrooms.  They had fun!

     East Philadelphia's Trunk-or-Treat turned into Table of Treats thanks to the weather.  The event was held in their beautiful new building with which they feel God has blessed them.

There were soccer players, baseball players, and all kinds of interesting characters having fun in a colorfully decorated room.  There was a photo op with pumpkins and fall flowers for lasting memories of the evening.  Halloween treats were eagerly put into trick or treat containers and a selection of finger foods filled up hungry characters.   It was a fun, family oriented evening.

Rain couldn't keep Philadelphia High School and Middle School Tornadoes away from a great cause.  The Beta and Junior Beta Club members participated in the Breast Cancer Pink Out Awareness Walk on the morning of October 26.  There was a good turnout for the Walk.  Thank you Sarah Alexander for sponsoring the event and thank you to all of those who walked.
