Noon On Square Starts This Friday

Noon On The Square starts this Friday on Courthouse Square in downtown Paris, Tennessee.  
This is one of the coolest things about small town-living in Paris.  Every Friday in September at 11:00 folks bring a lawn chair and gather under the shade trees to listen to music, eat and hang out with friends, neighbors and other acquaintances.
