District Dog Lunches start July 11

The Holmes Alumni Association is gearing up for their District Dog Lunches in the nine counties supporting Holmes Community College.

The lunches, held in July and August, have been organized to help alumni network and socialize with other alumni in the area. The lunches will begin at 11 a.m. at each location and will be dutch. There will be no charge for the event, and all alumni are welcome to attend including recent graduates.

The first event will kick off in Grenada County on July 11 at 333 Restaurant. Then the other events will be as follows: Attala County Lunch on July 12, at Outfielders in Kosciusko; Yazoo County Lunch on July 18, at Tom's on Main in Yazoo City; Montgomery County Lunch on July 19, at Tracks in Winona; Carroll County Lunch on July 25, at Tutti's in North Carrollton; Holmes County Lunch on July 26, at Gladys' in Lexington; Madison County Lunch on August 1, at Culinary Cowboy in Canton; Webster County Lunch, at Pepper Ray's II on August 2 in Eupora; and Choctaw County Lunch on August 8, at Pap's in Ackerman.

"By staying in touch with alumni we can gain insight from our former students," Coordinator of Alumni Affairs Katherine Ellard said. "There are many opportunities for former students to remain involved with Holmes Community College, and the Alumni Association wants to stay connect with as many alumni as possible."
