Tomorrow, Friday, May 6, is the Brookport Elementary School’s Family Fun Night. There will be all kinds of fun activities.

I believe it will be serving a spaghetti dinner at 5 p.m. — $10 for adults and $5 for children.

There is also a silent auction, besides the games with drawings to be held every half hour. A bicycle and a scooter will be the big drawing items at the end of the night.

This will be a great family activity so come out and play.

The rains held off for the jambalaya fest this past Saturday, April 30, on West Second Street. Cars were parked all over the place and there was a constant crowd all afternoon. My husband brought me a plate. The fried fish was good, too. I hope they raised a lot of money for the orphanage in Haiti.

The Senior Citizens will hold their last meeting before the summer break on Tuesday, May 10. A gift exchange will take place before eating out at Yesterday’s. Summertime is usually a busy time for families, but meetings will start again the second Tuesday of September. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. in the activity building at First Baptist Church on Pell Road.

Tuesday, May 10, is also the Brookport City Council meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. The last few meetings were finished in under an hour. Residents have an opportunity to address the whole council at the start of the meeting, if so desired.

Birthdays for the week include William Bickham Jr., Shanice Skinner and Corey Greer on May 5. Jerry Muniz celebrates May 7, Teri Neely and Brenda Burrus on May 8 and Jo Carol Hurst on May 10. May each of you have a very happy birthday with many more to come.

By the way, I did get my birthday strawberry shortcake. A friend surprised me with it, and it was exactly what I wanted — from the sponge cake, to the strawberries and the whipped cream, with some chocolate covered strawberries thrown in. Best cake ever. Thank you, Bronda, and thanks to your grandson who suggested you make it.
