House Resolution
State Representative Sam Mims presents Summit Mayor Percy Robinson a Special Resolution passed in the Mississippi Legislature recognizing Summit's Sesquicentennial. The handsomely framed document hangs prominently displayed in Council Chambers at City Hall alongside other similar commemorative items.
Jewish Cemetery Tour
The weather did not cooperate that Thursday evening, causing a change in location for the scheduled Tour of the Jewish Cemetery. David Feldman brought the Tour to the Reception and gave a wonderful extemporaneous presentation on the history of Jewish merchants and families in Summit to Reception attendees.
Sesquicentennial Committee Recognized
Master of Ceremonies Max Fenn presented Sesquicentennial Chair Carolyn Smith a lovely gift on behalf of the Town of Summit in grateful appreciation for her outstanding leadership as chairman of the Sesquicentennial Committee. All members of the Committee were recognized for their service.
Gone But Not Forgotten Series on Display
Summit artist Hudora Cain Lewman agreed to place all twelve of her "Gone But Not Forgotten" watercolor series on display especially for the Reception at City Hall. It was the second and last time the series was shown to the public in its entirety. The series depicts local sites that either no longer exist, or do no longer appear the same. The series has been reproduced in calendars and notecards and some of the originals have been acquired by private collectors.
