First Lady of Mississippi headlines PSS summertime events

First Lady of Mississippi; Elee Reeves

Pearl Senior Services (PSS) has scheduled a diverse lineup of activities and events for the month of July. Most notably, the First Lady of Mississippi, Elee Reeves, will be the guest speaker of the month on Thursday, July 15, at 11:30 a.m. The PSS July newsletter provided the following biographical synopsis:


"Reeves has enjoyed reading in schools, promoting the importance of literacy for students of all ages. After the historic flooding in our state in 2020, Reeves partnered with Keep Mississippi Beautiful to highlight the need of participating in community clean-up efforts to restore Mississippi’s natural beauty. Reeves looks forward to discussing her initiatives and what she is hoping to accomplish during the upcoming year. Committed to giving back to her community and her fellow

Mississippians, Reeves volunteers her time to numerous charitable and civic organizations. Elee and Governor Tate Reeves are the proud parents of three daughters, Tyler, Emma and Maddie. They attend Gallaway Memorial United Methodist Church. The First Family enjoys sharing their home with their King Charles Cavalier dogs, Belle and Hazel."


Tickets are available to residents fifty-five years of age and older, $5 a head. There will be no registrations holds, as space is limited.

On the following Tuesday, July 20, at 11:30 a.m., the Brown Bag Lunch will host Lori Matthews with Care & Care Senior Home Services, LLC. She will discuss providing care to loved ones while also giving a much needed break to other family members. Attendees are asked to bring lunch, and PSS will provide drinks.

Movie Matinee to be held July 26 at 1 p.m. The movie of the month is Percy vs. Goliath. Academy Award Winner Christopher Walken, Zach Braff and Christina Ricci star in the true story of a small-town farmer taking on one of the largest agricultural and food manufacturing corporations. Percy Schmeiser (Walken), a third-generation farmer, is sued by a corporate giant for allegedly using their patented seeds. With little resources to fight the giant legal battle, Percy joins forces with up-and-coming attorney Jack Weaver (Braff) and environmental activities Rebecca Salcau (Ricci) to fight the monumental case all the way up to the Supreme Court.

Those interested in registering for activities with PSS are encouraged to do so in advance, as space is limited.
