  • Maybe Mother Nature was in a good mood Saturday because of Shelby County’s Earth Day celebration at Red Orchard Park.

    Whatever the reason, the first day of sunshine in days was a welcome sight, both for visitors and for the dozens of people and organizations that had worked hard to make sure the event was a success, which all agreed that it was.
