National Donor Awareness Month
Independent film makers are gathering in Starkville.
Local business leaders say now is the time to raise their standards for customer service and employee training if they want their share of the holiday spending dollars.
Dozens of vendors are selling arts and crafts and homemade goods.
The rainy weather didn't stop folks from coming out to Starkville's annual holiday shopping kick-off.
With Christmas just five weeks away, some local performers are getting ready to showcase their talents in a holiday favorite - the Nutcracker ballet.
