Society Program Meeting Held February 17

The Itawamba Historical Society held its regular monthly program meeting Tuesday evening February 17 in the society's Gordon McFerrin Assembly Hall of the George Poteet History Center. After a social hour and buffet dinner, the program was presented by Judge Michael P. Mills of Oxford (top left). Mills, a native of Itawamba County, read passages from his book, Twice Told Tombigbee Tales to a capacity audience. The program was enjoyed by an attentive audience. Attending the meeting were four of northeast Mississippi's bloggers (bottom left) and members of the society. Pictured in the Gaither Spradling Research Library before the program are Don Dulaney (bottom left, Dulaney Branch), Mona Robinson Mills (Itawamba Connections), Terry Thornton (top left, Hill Country of Monroe County) and Bob Franks (Itawamba History Review).

The Itawamba Historical Society regular monthly program meetings are each third Tuesday, beginning at 6 p.m. at the corner of Church Street and Museum Drive in Mantachie. The public is invited to attend all program meetings.
