Daffodils are blooming; little buds of green are shyly beginning to show, baby birds are chirping, warm days are slowly but surely arriving. Spring is roaring in with beauty and excitement. Along with all of these exhilarating developments, there is one particular event that I am beyond elated about. It’s the 2014 Junior Auxiliary of Water Valley Spring Fling.
This is one of the only semi-formal events to take place here in town. Events kick off at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 12, with the first annual golf scramble. Come out and help raise funds for the new community clothes closet while you enjoy an afternoon of fun with your friends. Sign your team up now at Jay Gee’s. This is a flighted tournament comprised of four person teams, mixed youth and adult.
Following the golf scramble will be a night of laughs, live music and bidding wars at the annual Crown Gala that will begin at 6 p.m. sharp and end around 9 p.m. You and I alike will have a shot at showing our support to this town and celebrate with Junior Auxiliary and local talents.
This phenomenal Gala will also be trimmed in light dining and provide a chance to engage in a silent auction. This spectacular evening will include live music from three local bands. That’s right Water Valley citizens, local. If you’re a big supporter locally then you will not want to miss this awesome opportunity to show your love. So not only is there going to be superb light snacks, dancing and an unforgettable silent auction, we can support our local, very talented musicians while having a great time. The bands will include our very own Jacob King, The Eisenhauer Band and Whiskey Joe and The Bottom Dollars.
There is a preview of the items up for auction on the Junior Auxiliary of Water Valley Spring Fling 2014 Facebook page. Please visit this page for more information and for ticket purchases. Admission is $20 single and $35 couple. You may also contact Becky Tatum at 662-202-6822 or JayGees at 473-2400. You have the freedom to support this town by joining in on a great day filled with golf and then an evening of fun, food and local live music. Don’t miss out.
I’m delighted to live in a place that shows what is important by taking the time and resources to plan organized events that I can engage in while showing my support to the charming town I have fallen in love with. I will be there and hope to see you all. So come out and show your support to this incredible community by making this the biggest and best event Water Valley has seen in years.
