Dr. Katrina Poe and the new Kilmichael Clinic in Montgomery County will hold their first health fair since they opened their doors in September 2012.
In conjunction with Kilmichael Hospital, the fair will be held on Saturday, May 18, in front of the hospital at 301 Lamar Avenue from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Eulandia Thompson, Office Manager for Kilmichael Clinic, said the health fair will feature several health-related vendors including Mid-Delta, Sta-Home and Legacy Hospice.
The town of Kilmichael had a lot to sing about Tuesday afternoon when the “King of the Blues”, B.B. King stopped by for the unveiling of the latest marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail.
King, 86, is in Mississippi this week for his annual B.B. King Homecoming Festival in Indianola, but he, and the town of Kilmichael were honored Tuesday by the Mississippi Development Association Tourism Division (MDA).

KILMICHAEL – There is no doubt that legendary bluesman B.B. King is a down-to-earth kind of guy. His superstar status has earned him international and worldwide recognition and his talent and musical abilities are beyond question.
But the singer’s humble nature has become so evident, especially when he makes the time to return “home” to the Mississippi Delta to participate in his annual homecoming celebration.
