4th of July 2012 Celebrated in Harrisburg NC

If you want to get out and celebrate the 4th of July, this is the place to come, Harrisburg NC. A very clean and family oriented celebration. We had gone to the parade in the morning and once again, it was great. I guess the one thing that really impresses me is that the Harrisburg Presbyterian Church had put out chairs for anyone to sit on, gave away free water and watermelon, plus had their restrooms open to the public. But then, not only that, they actually had people walking through the crowd with the cold water serving it to those who wanted it. I see this as just a part of what a church is all about, and these people have gone above and beyond. I really want to thank them and the city of Harrisburg. GREAT 4TH OF JULY!.

Ah yes, and in the center is Captain Jack Sparrow, my favorite in the parade.

Court Street, Jacksonville, NC

Where did they all go? The jewelry store? The bars? The restaurants? The clothing stores? But, as I stopped to walk and take a couple of pictures I could still hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the food from my memories of Court Street. So many changes in the past 46 years... 

And of course, don't forget Old Bridge Street

Stonewall Jackson Training School

Welcome to the Stonewall Jackson Training School located just outside Concord, NC. These here are the original buildings that were built back in 1909. Of course there is a much newer facility located behind all these buildings now. It was the first juvenile home in the state of North Carolina. I have to sit here and wonder what kind of boys were sent here. How were they treated here? Did they go on and lead productive lives from here? 

The Cannon House

One of the "cottages", as they were called, where the boys were put up.

Concord Mills Mall

Finally back to the walking routine, I hope. On the cold and really hot days I can come here and walk in the mall. It's .8 miles per lap and if you walk all the entrance's it's 1 mile per lap. If the weather is good then I can go to the Fairfield Park over in Mint Hill and walk one of the two courses there.
