A Memory from May 19, 2015…”Thank you Coach Jimmy”…

Barrett School    1st grade  58-59 - CopyMay 19, 2015
Today being “Boys Club Day” here is a memory of mine:

My brother & I used to ride the Bus to the Boy’s Club (in Birmingham, AL), which was across the old football field of Phillips High School, down town from East Lake. We couldn’t “afford” a membership to the Y.M.C.A (thank GOD). But out of the goodness of his heart an “Ole Little League Baseball (Assistant) Coach” from Wahouma Ball Park, who worked @ The B’ham News, paid for us to have a membership there. And three (3) times we got to go to Summer Camp, @ Camp Jimmy Goodwin (a week long Camp) all (to my knowledge) paid for by The B’ham News under a Sponsorship Program, on Smith Lake. It was fun and very entertainin’. Thank you “Coach Jimmy”…..BG>

The “Ole Camp is long now closed. The property is being/has been SOLD & re-developed. The memories will be for ever in the minds all of those Kids that were lucky enough to attend “Camp Jimmy Goodwin…”Hold’em Hook”…..BG>
