I have loved getting to know editor, Kristin Allen, as she has brought The Scout Guide to life here in Jackson…

 The daughter-in-law of long time friends, she has embraced our community and is more of an ambassador than we could have wished for!  Congratulations Kristin on a job well done!

The launch party for Volume II was held at Brent’s Drugs – Fondren’s Soda Fountain Since 1946 – where my family has a long and well loved history of not only filling a prescription but enjoying a hamburger or egg and olive sandwich at the fountain while waiting.

As it became clear that the life of the local pharmacy/soda fountain was coming to an end, the iconic Jackson site was given a new life.  One of my favorite aspects of the innovative recreation is the “back room”, The Apothecary, where libations and snacks are served in the area that formerly served as home to the pharmacy…
