Published 9:30 am Tuesday, August 16, 2016 - The Vicksburg Post

 

 

Vicksburg’s downtown is what drew me to this city.

The United Way of West Central Mississippi is preparing to paint the town once again during its second annual 5K True Color Run.

The race is scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, and is the official kickoff event to the organization’s campaign year.
