ABOUT THIS MONTH'S COVER:
Nothing says "autumn” like pumpkins, har-vest corn and black cats, captured by Paris Photography Club member Mary Lodge.
In Paris! - It's Fall, Ya'll
Autumn. It seems that if you talk to some of our retirees from the northern states, autumn is a harbinger of the coming winter deep freeze. If you talk to folks from the Deep South, it's just a cool snap with little noticeable change. Perhaps that's why I love autumn in Henry County, because it's perfect. Cool temperatures, cool events and unparalleled beauty.
Henry County in autumn means townscapes and country drives layered in rich reds, deep oranges and sun-kissed golds. It means fall festivals, football and bon ﬁres with s'mores. It means crisp days for trips to the new Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center or Eiffel Tower Park, the Arts and Crafts Festival at Paris Landing, Oktoberfest, Eye Full of Paris Weekend, Spooktacular, and more.
Just like our local community, PARIS! magazine has lots going on, too. In this issue, we visit with local poet Barry Hart, check out the celebrity family of King Dunlap, pick up some delicious sandwich recipes from Cindy Snyder and take a trip down memory lane through Maplewood cemetery.
Our resident traveling nurse heads to the Ozarks with her four-legged companion, Sydney, and Abigail Smith gives us a glimpse of Africa from her recent travels.
With each issue, the PARIS! staff enjoys highlighting a local service club and a local individual. In this issue,
"The Clubhouse" features the Quota Club, home to a host of shakers and movers, and "The Spotlight" is on Chamber of Commerce Person of the Year Carlton Gerrell, who discusses his need to not only be involved, but to be part of the solution.
There's plenty more with "Healthy Ideas," "In the Garden," and "When Bullets Flew," not to mention a calendar of events that offers non-stop fun.
Get out and enjoy autumn,
Editor and Publisher of PARIS! Magazine
