Flowers are blooming, lawn mowers are rumbling and the scent of fresh-cut grass is in the air.

It is finally spring and everyone is sprucing up for the town’s big event on Saturday.

It is what I like to call “volunteer season” around Prentiss and Jefferson Davis County.

While we have volunteers every single day that save lives and come to the aid of others, each spring we have several activities that require more volunteers than those we are blessed with each day.

With our annual Run for the Roses this weekend and Relay for Life next month, something needs to be said in appreciation of those that give of their time for these events.

These people, like all of us, need to hear positive reinforcement about their efforts. They are giving of their time. For free.

Everyone is welcome to join any committee and these organizations are always needing an extra set of hands.

Thank you to ALL the volunteers who help our community function, succeed and hopefully thrive.

Get your running shoes on and I’ll see you Saturday morning!
