Swearing-ins set for new officials

By NEMS Daily Journal

The new municipal term starts Monday, and Lee County communities either have held, or will hold, their swearing-in ceremonies for elected officials.
Tupelo Mayor Jack Reed Jr. and the seven City Council members will take their oaths at 3 p.m. Monday at City Hall. A reception will follow, and the public is invited to both events.
Ceremonies already have been held in Baldwyn and Saltillo.
The schedule for other Lee County communities:
* Today: Shannon, 4 p.m. at Town Hall; Nettleton, 5 p.m. at City Hall
* Friday: Guntown, 2 p.m. at Town Hall
* Sunday: Verona, 2 p.m. at City Hall; Plantersville, 3 p.m. at United Methodist Church
