Spend some of your Memorial Day Weekend in Hickman County

It is Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of Summer. I was just reading that folks are staying closer to home for their holiday and vacation fun (the “stay-cation”, as we call it.) If you are looking for a nice drive and something a little different to do during this long weekend or this summer, check out Hickman County tourism information at http://www.musiccitybackyard.com/. It looks like a great weekend for a day trip or a scenic motorcycle cruise.

If you are in town on Monday, Memorial Day, take a moment to stop at the Centerville Public Square at the memorial monument to recognize the sacrifice of our Veterans on the beautiful newly renovated courthouse lawn.
