Love of Literacy Dessert Tasting is a favorite annual event in McNairy County held near Valentine’s Day. Local businesses and organizations decorate tables and serve dessert samples. There is entertainment and fun to be had by all. Judges award prizes for best desserts and decorations. Funds raised benefit the McNairy County Literacy Council to support McNairy County Adult Education and their initiative to help adults pursuing their high school equivalency test. The event supports a good, educational cause. The event is sponsored by Independent Appeal.
