In an earlier post I mention how nice the area in front of Old Red now looks, with the completion of phase 1 of a major landscape renovation project. The word on the street is that Old Red is being considered as a site for the 2008 Galveston Historical Foundation homes tour, held around May each year. For a community that chiefly knows us through the ER, clinics and doctors’ offices, wouldn’t it be great to share this other side of our great university with people? Keep your fingers crossed. I’ll let you know if I hear more.
