John Lawrence was mentioned in the story last week about Jacktoberfest -- the "teach a man to fish" guy who was a driving force behind Jubilee!JAM and Jacktoberfest. He is leaving Downtown Partners and moving to Memphis along with Melody McAnally, and Hal and Mal's is hosting a going away party for them Thursday night from 5:30 until in the Brew Pub. It's a shame to lose people who have given so much of their time and talents to help rejuvenate downtown Jackson, but stop by and wish them well all the same!
Sorry to hear that John is leaving. I know he's a major supporter of the revitalization of Jackson. I wish him well.
