Summer Issue of Itawamba Settlers to be Mailed Next Week

The Summer 2007 issue of Itawamba Settlers magazine was delivered to the society on June 8 from the printers and should be in the mail to the society membership next week. This issue should prove to be a very interesting issue with a focus on the Southern Claims Commission records of Itawamba County. A photo feature on the old Morganton House is also featured.


The next program meeting of the society will be held on Tuesday evening, June 19. The meeting will be held in the Gordon McFerrin Assembly Hall of the George Poteet History Center. The featured speaker will be society member Julian Riley of Tupelo and the topic will be his Itawamba County research on his upcoming book about the Itawamba family roots of Elvis Presley. This should prove to be a very interesting program. The meeting begins at 6 pm with a reception and the program begins at 6:30. The society’s headquarters is located at the corner of Church Street and Museum Drive in Mantachie. The public is invited to attend.


The society’s semi-annual book sale is in full swing with hundreds of titles to choose from. All types of used books from fiction to non-fiction are on sale from twenty five cents to one dollar. Be sure to attend the book sale Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 am until 3 pm. Funds raised from the book sale go towards the operation of the George Poteet History Center.
