Senior Citizen's Center Opening!
A brand new Senior Citizens Center has been built in the City of Bay Springs. The opening was held August 5, 2014, with a large crowd of citizens, officials, and digitaries present.
The new Center is located next to the Bay Springs Police Department and City Hall. This building will provide an excellent place for seniors to meet and to enjoy meals and activities. Nutritious meals are provided at no cost. The center is open weekdays from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm.
The new building has a historic aspect that connects it to the city's past. The brick used on some of the city streets was saved when it was taken up long ago, and has been re-cycled to brick the new building.
We appreciate the two grants that provided funding for the new building: They are: Small Municipalities Grant through Mississippi Development Authority, and USDA Rural Development.
Thanks to Carolyn Buckley @ Jasper County News for photos!
BayFest was honored to have the U.S. Army National Guard local unit represented to educate the public.Lieutenant Carlson expressed his appreciation for the City's support and is happy to come to BayFest as a way to express their gratitude. An "Avenger" ReCon Hummer Artillery Vehicle was on display in two locations, along with the remote operation system. Lieutenant Gavin Carlson and Captain Chris Lafferty explained that the Avenger has 2 missile pods and can support up to 8 Stinger missiles, a 50 lb machine gun, and has Fleer System night vision. There were two locations displaying the Avenger. At the second location, the men surprised and delighted some visiting boys by letting them remotely control the recon unit! They also demonstrated loading a dummy missile into the missile pod.
