June 14 was a very busy day at the Pearl River Welcome Center in Picayune. The morning included a beautiful flag raising courtesy of special guests Russell Foster and Frank Egger, both veterans who did the honors of raising the American and State flags. Afterwards guests and visitors enjoyed a beautifully decorated flag cake done in red, white and blue. In the afternoon, the center hosted a storytelling time with author Mac McClelland and his wife Charlotte who read “Hopping to Toomey.” The children were overjoyed to hear and learn about the rabbits and the small town of Toomey and enjoy lemonade and other treats. One lucky participant, a young man named Bryce, won an autographed copy of the book.
