How have thing's changed?
Fri Aug 15, 2014 12:36pm

I now live in Beaumont, does anyone know of a way to see how things have changed physically at the home, something like maybe even photo's? Like this is the way it was and this is the way it is now. Is the "old school building" still there in the front by the admin building? Is there still a malt shop in the student center? And lastly, there was a man and wife that worked at the home named Harrington, he was over the division that had Williams when I was there and his wife taught oil painting. Thanks and have a great one.

          I'm sure she was thrilled to see you, after all the years she and Jes spent at the Home. It was so kind of you to visit her in her final days!

          There used to be, and probably still are, many old Sunshine Magazines at Methodist Home, where you could look to see if they contain some of the photos you took. I have a few magazines, if you want... more
