Coffeeville Chamber Adds Wildlife Show To Homecoming Events

Hunters, get your mounts off the wall. Celebrate Coffeeville 2013 will host the North MS Wildlife Exhibit/Show on Front Street, October 5. Bring your mounts to the fire station on Front St. by 10 a.m. for the contest.
There will be categories for Best Out of State Buck, Best Mississippi Buck, and Best Buck-Crowd Favorite.
Also planned in this unique event  is the Best Catch of the Day Fish Mount, Best Winged Mount and Best of the Hunt Mount which includes  any other mount.  Anyone interested is welcome to take part. Prizes and cash will be awarded to top winners.
The wildlife show also promises fun for the youngsters with a Camo Kids Contest at the Bandstand at 11 a.m. Prizes will be awarded in the following categories-Ages 4 and under, Ages 5-6, Ages 7-8, and Ages 9-12. All kids are encouraged to dress up in your camo and participate. Then you will want to stop by the Kids’ Area for a fun time on the Blow Ups and other exciting entertainment.
The Bandstand will be filled the entire day with music from locals, as well as rising star, Jacob King, and the outstanding sounds of Slufoot Louy. Jackie Nassar, a Ground Zero fav, will entertain the crowd during the Front St. Dance from 6 to 8 p.m.
Vendors pertaining to anything hunting need to contact the Chamber at 662-675-8385. Spaces are filling up  for this great event to advertise outdoor products. Organizers invite wild game meat processors, hunting apparel sales, hunting land realty businesses, hunting motor vehicle sales, and any other related vendor to come set up for the day. The fee is very small for booth space, which makes this a good opportunity for you to bring your items to the public.
The cost of a 10 by 10 booth is $25 or $40 with electricity.
The Arts & Crafts and Food Vendor Area continues to fill up. Again, if you haven’t called for booth space, you will want to do so right away at 662-675-8385.
Five time National Archery Champion Waldo Cleland will entertain children and adults. Kids will want to shoot a bow and arrow and watch him shoot. This promises to be a great stop for all. The Yalobusha Historical Society is making plans for visitors to stop by their nice facility, located in the former Presbyterian Church/Masonic Lodge buildings. Make sure you visit them during the day on October 5. Spaces are available for Class Reunions. You will need to contact the Chamber to reserve a FREE space if you wish to have a central place for your class to visit.
Don’t  forget the Cele-brate Coffeeville t-shirts will be arriving soon. Children’s XS,S,M,L,XL and adult S,M,L,XL, 2XL,and 3XL sizes are available. The cost will again be $15. Chamber members will sell tickets for a gun raffle at $2 per ticket or 3 for $5. Tickets will be on sale prior to October 5 by Chamber members and will be available at the Chamber tent on Celebrate Coffeeville Day. The drawing will be at 6 p.m., just prior to the Street Dance.
