FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now)- The holidays are a tough time to be alone, especially in a nursing home or similar facility. So thirty years ago the Snowflake Ball was created just for such folks. And it is still going on today.
It is a brisk December afternoon at Northwest Rankin High School's Performing Arts Building. For a while now, vans and buses have been rolling up and people have been rolling out for the annual Snowflake Ball.
