Thursday, July 6


A crew of a dozen or so SFA volunteers spent the long 4th of July weekend working on the rehab of Willie Mae's Scotch House in New Orleans. With John Currence of City Grocery in Oxford in the lead -- and John Besh and company of Restaurant August in New Orleans providing the midday fuel -- they framed the interior of the restaurant.

A report from Currence: "We made amazing headway this weekend. Did not complete the punchlist I had set up, but it was a little ambitious, so I am not close to disappointed. Wrote a whopper of a check for the concrete work and a decent one for the lumber. Now we can get the electrican started."
