Here’s to the Week Ahead: Sep. 21-27
It’s been six months since we last brought you a look at local events (thanks, COVID-19!)
Today, and every Monday, we’ll begin looking ahead – for the entire week – to keep you in the loop in #JXNMS. It won’t be every single event for the week, but a curated look – an editor’s choice if you will.
A couple of disclaimers: events are noted by location or, in the case of an online-only presentation, we’ll use “Virtual” as the venue.
Secondly, we will strongly encourage you to follow COVID-19 restrictions set forth by the City of Jackson. Those include wearing a face covering and social distancing. Stay informed of additional public health guidance on the state level and in Jackson to minimize risk to themselves and others.
