The Brevard Memorial Schools Foundation Memorial is located on the grounds of the Transylvania County Library. The steps leading up to the memorial are the old steps that led from the old high school to the football field, where the library now stands. There is a tall granite rock, which came from the Penrose Quarry, with Brevard Schools engraved on it and is surrounded by paver bricks, some of which have names of alumni and teachers of the schools on them. Several people want their names and class engraved. The persons who did the engraving have moved. The goal now is to find someone who can do this.

The Window

Monday afternoon I kept hearing a helicopter, and then I saw it. It was a Forest Service helicopter, and it was going back and forth with a water bucket on it. Found out that there was a forest fire on Ross Road. I found out the helicopter was getting water from the lake on Forest Lake off Clement Road and then taking it over to Ross Road, where the fire was at. It was a sight to see. Six-year-old Silas got so excited watching the action.
