    Great little town, Main Street USA
    We grew up out in the New Harmony Community. East Union High School. Many things l remember about our visits into town, the milkshakes at the ReXall Drug Store, Dr Shands and Shands Hospital, my Mother and l both worked at Union County General, The Bank of New Albany where Ann greeted everyone by name. The Flying Saucer.
    I now live 100 miles North of Seattle, but North Mississippi will always be home.
