The 8th Annual "Classics in the Courtyard" started last Friday at the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation, formally S.F.X.A. This coming Friday will be Classics Blues, Rock, Pop and Originals performed by Patrick Smith Band; lunch provided by Palmertree Catering. On Friday, November 6, it will be Classics Pop and Country performed by Maria Signa & Ralph Miller; lunch provided by Martin's at Midtown. It is always great to come back home to my Alma Mater. It brings back a flood of happy and long-ago memories for me of 12 years in one whole city block.

The old incinerator collapsing.
Lots of writing on the walls in the tunnels.
I noticed a wooden brace in place midway.
Our old sewing room on left and cafeteria on right.

Mercy sign above the doorway.
Easier to walk on with half-paved sidewalk and the other half of the old bricks.
The big playground as it looks today.
