Still lively at 100!

By WALTER REDDEN,

The lady who sits at the table next to me in the dining room will be celebrating her 100th birthday on June 29, 2018. This lady is Irene Adams, a remarkable person. Her movement, as she walks, is comparable to a much younger person. No one would ever guess that she was approaching the century mark. All guesses might place her in her mid-70s.




Walter Scott Club goes on

By WALTER REDDEN,

The Walter Scott Coffee Club is still going strong. The name is to honor the former mayor of Jackson, who served during the 1930s. The club began in 1934. Since there was a serious lack of communication during the Depression, there were very few telephones and only a few radios throughout the city.
