Denton Culpepper will be the guest speaker for Minden’s Lions Club this Thursday. Culpepper is a Wildlife Biologist/Forester at Mississippi Trust and is the one responsible for the restoration of the Ivy Vale Plantation (Shadow House) located at 2529 Highway 531. Culpepper started restoring the property April of 2017 and it finished in September of 2018. What used to be nothing more than an old broken down house is now a beautiful venue to host events. The Minden Lions Club meets every Thursday at noon at the American Legion Hall.
