CALENDAR OF EVENTS
First Citizen’s National Bank and the Collierville Police Department are hosting a free document shredding event for the general public. Participants may simply drive up to the bank, and drop off his/her documents to be shredded by a truck on site. The event will take place March 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. First Citizen’s National Bank is located at 3668 South Houston Levee Road.
If you love fabric, yarns and beads, you must put April 3 on your calendar. That is the next meeting of the Collierville Sewing Guild. The program will feature a local quilter and crafter who will show off her handmade dolls. These are not your ordinary dolls but dolls with wild hair and outrageous clothes. Bring a glue stick and make a truly fun doll of your own to take home. The group meets at the Collierville Hobby Lobby at 10 a.m. in the classroom at the back of the store.
Join the Collierville Library on April 7 from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Halle Room to listen to author Ashton Lee discuss and sign his new novel, The Reading Circle. Ashton Lee’s novel, The Cherry Cola Book Club, debuted in April 2013 to rave reviews with RT Book Reviews calling it a “delightful read” and Mississippi Magazine calling it “witty and heartfelt.” Lee was born in historic Natchez, Miss., into a large, extended Southern family which gave him much fodder for his fiction in later life.
