FIRST FRIDAYS HALL OF FAME NEW BETHLEHEM WHERE WE LIVE YEAR BOOKS

IN MEMORY


I would like to introduce myself...
My name is Felicia Chisholm Hopper and I will be assuming the role as Horn Lake Eagle News website caretaker. My husband, Brandon Hopper, and I are members of the graduating class of 1988 and proud residents of DeSoto County. As you may have read previously, our current webmaster, Doug Hardin, has decided to retire after many years of providing his creativity, vision, and thoughtfulness to the Horn Lake Eagle News website. Being a member of the graduating class of 1958, he took great pains in sharing important HLHS Alumni news and information. My goal is to maintain the site that Doug created and build upon his vision of sharing. Please contact me to submit any content that you would like to have added to the website. You can do this by sending emails direct to hlhsalumninews@gmail.com

STARTING IN FEBRUARY 2020, OUR FIRST FRIDAY LUNCHEONS WILL BE MEETING AT  THE  GRAND  BUFFET....ON THE NORTH SIDE OF GOODMAN ROAD.....WEST OFF OF I-55, OR EAST OF HIGHWAY 51,....IN THE SHOPPING AREA NEAR  HOME   DEPOT ....PLEASE HELP GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THIS CHANGE IN LOCATION....SEE YOU THERE!.....
