Easter Sunday Marks Opening
Of Annual Natchez Pilgrimage
NATCHEZ, Miss., March 2.—To
iay Natchez is a veritable bee-hive
>f activity in preparation of the 9th
I
| Annual pilgrimage of the Natchez
Garden club which opens Easter,
Sunday, March 24, and continues
through April 7. Mrs. William Her
bert Hale, president of the organi
zation says, “Never before since the
inauguration of the Pilgrimage by
the Natchez Garden club in 1D32 has
such interest been manifested. Our
office force works late into the
night and all day Sunday in order
to take care of the inquiries and re
servations coming in. The ball com
mittee is making elaborate prepara
tions for staging the Confederate
Pageant in the most brilliant setting
ever seen. “To many who feel the
restrictions of foreign travel,” says
Mrs. Joseph P. Dixon publicity
chairman, “this opportunity to visit
the Deep South is particularly wel
come. Dozens of the leading tour
and travel- bureaus of the country
are booked to capacity for trips to
Natchez during the period of March
24-April 7, Inc.”
Honorable Paul B. Johnson, gover
nor of Mississippi, and Mrs- John
son, with the Colonels of his staff
and their ladies will lend great
pomp to the opening performance
or lire v-oiiLeueraie Jrugeaiu. uu uie
evening of March 25. Many notables
are registered with the New York
Horticultural Society arriving on
March 29, for two full days of en
joyment. officers of the New Or
leans Garden Society will be honor
guests when the South Central Re
gion of Garden clubs visit Natchez
following their conference in New
Orleans. April 5 is set aside to
honor this prominent group of wom
en from the five states of this re
gion. April 6. is dedicated to the
ten states w-hich comprise the South
Atlantic Region of Garden clubs.
Following their conference in lau
rel they will visit Natchez. At this
time special tribute will be paid
Mrs. Frederick A. Wallis of Ken
tucky, president of the National
Council of State Garden clubs, and
Mrs. Ambrose Ford, of Virginia, re
gional vice-president. Realizing the
educational value of the Pilgrimage
a number of college groups have
made reservations for the tours and
evening entertainments which au
thentically portray the brilliant so
cial life of long ago.
There is an indefinable glamour
about Natchez at Pilgrimage time
which has drawn to her open door
the great and near great of Ameri
ca, that has caught and held the
fancy of the nation. It is not enough
to read of the romance and history
surrounding the Briers, Melrose,
Rosalie, Connelly’s Tavern and the
eighteen other homes open March
24-ApriI 7. One must actually visit
these places to capture the un
daunted spirit of Natchez. The reali
ty and the dream together must be
experienced to be understood. The
Natchez Garden club through its
annual Pilgrimage endeavors to
shai*e with the world of today its
glorious heritage of the past.
