Thankful At Thanksgiving


Jaques Bernard (right) of Oakton, Va. has a special reason for celebrating each Thanksgiving in Water Valley. Five years ago his cousin, Ramona Bernard (left), donated a kidney for his much-needed transplant.  During last week’s visit Jaques helped Ramona and the Town and Country Garden Club put up Christmas decorations at the pavilion on Main Street.
