WWALS facebook page and group 2021-12-11

Facebook confuses everybody. As soon as you figure it out, Facebook will change it.

WWALS has a facebook page, which anybody in the world can see. We use the page to get the word out about advocacy, paddles, events, etc. You can share any post you see on the WWALS fb page.

WWALS also has a facebook group, which only WWALS members can join. The group is a perq of WWALS membership, with frequent discussions.

Barber Pool, early 20th century

Floridans worried about springs drying up: it already happened to this one. A sad channel with no flow in Saunders Park once was a large and famous spring-fed pool, remembered by many in Valdosta, Georgia, both those who went there and those who were refused.

The Barber-Pittman House is on the National Register of Historic Places.
