The North Florence location is way too far for the old people that live in Magnolia Gardens to walk. I drive several of them just to Tennessee Street because they can't walk comfortably even that far. Something close to Tuscaloosa Street back away from Tennessee Street is the choice of the Magnolia people I've talked to. Thank you Trinity Episcopal and First Methodist for your continued support of our older adult community over the years. You are the best!

This story about the city officials of Florence denying 'Room at the Table' a (any?) location for their generous endeavors does NOT speak very highly of the compassion, benevolence, kind-heartedness of the city decision makers! Come on Florence leaders! This is not the kind of things that most of us want the city of Florence to be known for! For this Christmas season, there's only one expression for these Florence leaders: "BAH HUMBUG" ... :(
