Can a Tunica civic club that’s been around 83 years still be relevant today?

From starting an annual golf tournament as a fundraiser, to recruiting new members, and to bringing a variety of interesting speakers to its Thursday lunch meetings, the club has seen a recent resurgence.
This year’s Fair offered a full day of fun at the Battle Arena on Saturday, June 9. Kids lined up for face painting and time on the bouncy slide as well as a look at the various equipment used by the road department.

After unsuccessfully searching the area for a production company, he knew what the next play would be.
Mardis Jones Films was born.
