It was not where I remembered it to be! In the name of progress it has been removed from its original position. Bobby and I started out to find it. I called my brother Bob because he remembers everything we ever did as children; he would surely know what had happened. He did. Rats! He knows it all. Well, he knew that it was removed so that the highway could be widened, but he didn't know what happened to it. He even said it has been gone for 40 years - no way! Maybe it has been gone 30 years, maybe. Well, Bobby and I found it. We're good together.
This memorial stone is now located on the Sikes Hall side of the Rotunda and President's Garden along Old Greenville Highway. It is a large stone that looks like those that Dad called Iron Rock. There is the bronze plaque that names "cadets" lost in World War I. Finding this set Bobby and me on a visit to each war memorial on the campus. Such a tour does stir gratitude and patriotism before you realize it is happening. Thanks be for all those who have fought for our sakes in all conflicts!
At Heirlooms & Comforts this week it is Clean Off the Bolt Weekend. We will honor the H&C tradition of clear a bolt of fabric (take it all) for a 25% discount in the fabric is a regular price fabric. If your choice is a sale priced fabric you will get an additional 10% off when you clean off the bolt. This special is good for Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5. Is the print you have been wishing for still on the shelf? Is the bolt skinny enough that you want to take it all? Visit us this week to be sure. Special applies for Friday and Saturday only.
We have spoken to Barbara Moore and she is coming to town on June 8 to show you even more great stuff about the innovations from Husqvarna Viking. Remember what fun we had the last time she was here?

When you are watching Barbara Moore and hearing about the great things that you can make with a sewing/embroidery machine remember that we are now going to have pre-owned Designer Diamond machines to sell. Two have already come in, traded to get the new Designer Diamond deluxe machine. These terrific machines that were traded are available at unbelievable purchase prices. You've been dreaming of having a Designer Diamond machine and now is a great time to get one at a fantastic price. Join the fun!
At Heirlooms & Comforts we want to encourage you to remember those who lost their lives for our freedom by commemorating Memorial Day, a national holiday. We will be closed that day so that our family of employees will have an opportunity to spend the day with their close friends and families remembering those who fought for our freedoms. Enjoy those freedoms and never forget!
