FRONT PORCH by Patricia Neely-Dorsey

Come sit a spell . . . . . .


(Hospitality Headquarters)
Just the spot
For taking in a cool breeze
And watching the world go by
Friends and neighbors out
For a leisurely stroll
Stop and sit a spell.
"Iced Tea"?
"Did you hear about...?"
"Do Tell!"
"You Don't Say!"
"My, how the time flies"
"Y'all come back, now"
"You hear? "

Patricia Neely-Dorsey
from My Magnolia Memories



Ya'll Come Back Now...  Ya Hear  :)

Sally Kate Winters Memorial Park - West Point Mississippi

The charm of West Point Mississippi ~ the hometown of both of my parents ~
will hold you spellbound, as you stroll along her quaint downtown

sidewalks and through her picturesque park. 

 The beautiful wisteria is out in full bloom on this summer day ......

Sally Kate Winters, was the only child of Mr. and Mrs. C. Preston Winters of West Point, Mississippi.  She died tragically in a car accident on April 11, 1965, just two months shy of graduation from the University of Mississippi.

The Sally Kate Winters Memorial Park was created when Mr & Mrs Winters purchased downtown property from the Illinois Central Railroad and donated it to the city and the community.
