Actually, It Was Easy Being Green

Water Valley Main Street Director Mickey Howley was officially the Blarney Stone at the Green Gala of Yalobusha last Saturday night. Howley, dressed as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, is shown here being smooched by Denise Sunderland, who actually paid for the privilege.

The winners in the various categories at the Water Valley Arts Council’s Green Gala of Yalobusha included (front, from left) Mari Foster, Mickey Howley, Pati D’Amico, Reiko Yamada, (back) Eddie Foster, Ramona Bernard, Cliff Lawson, Pat Ray, Bill Warren and Nicolas Trepanier.

Kermit the Frog (upper right) seems to be reacting along with Linda Maynor, Pam Timmins, Lucia Holloway and Mary Ann Wood to the eclectic collection of costumes on display during the Green Gala of Yalobusha last Saturday night. The event was a “green-themed” fund-raiser for the Water Valley Art Council’s Summer Art Camp.

Lots of food…much of it green.

They say if you stand still long enough around here, kudzu will grow right over you.

The Green Lantern waits for a call. Hopefully it won’t be from nature, because the suit is just about impossible to get out of.

As Ramona Bernard and Cliff Lawson watch the Green goings on, the farmer (right) seems fascinated by their attire.

Coulter Fussell and Betsy Person appear to be ignoring turtle boy.

If kissing the Blarney Stone gives one the gift of gab, what does dancing and rubbing its head do?
