Rosemark Civic Club

By Trip Jones, President

The Rosemark Civic Club is pleased to support all activities of HARE including the recent dedication of the Dr. Flippin historical marker at Memorial Park and the Bobby Blue Bland Day in Barretville Music Festival on June 3. Both events had good attendance and interest was expressed in making Bobby Blue Bland Day an annual event. Thanks to everyone for making June 3rd so successful.
The Club met on Tuesday, August 22nd at the Richland ARP Church. Topics covered included the upcoming 2017 Country Fair at Rosemark on Sept. 30th and the Home and Garden Show.

Rosemark Telephone Exchange Company Building Museum and Memorial Park update – Since the last newsletter the memorial bricks have been laid as well as the memorial stone and landscaping around the plaza has begun. The contract has been let for installing new electrical service in the museum. That work has started and will be completed before the fair.

Memphis Stone and Gravel lawsuit update – they are seeking to renew their permit in Atoka to mine gravel. No news to date out of Covington Chancery Court and as the old saying goes “no news is good news”. We did receive a report from a guest visitor, Deputy Chief Floyd Bonner of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, who confirmed that the road conditions are still not safe or conducive for trucking operations in our area. We will keep you updated when something changes via the rosemarkatokaunited@gmail.com distribution list, or you can follow at the Facebook pages of:
