Tuesday update

There’s a squirrel that got run over this morning at Main and Madison. I didn’t take a photo but you can go by and see him.

For those who prefer news about squirrels that aren’t dead, they were humping this morning in Court Square. Expect litters of squirrel babies around June 1.

Based on a sign I saw this week, it appears Calvary Episcopal has taken over the old Hospitality Hub building on N. Second and is transforming it into something called “The Welcome Inn.” The Hub moved out of the building and into 590 Washington several years ago.

… Okay, here we go, Calvary has info about the Welcome Inn. It will be a place to stay with showers for youth groups serving in Memphis. Also, Calvary will host a Room In The Inn space there for the next several years. Calvary owns the building and rented the space to the Hub for $1/year for 8 years.

Speaking of Room in the Inn, First Congo out in Cooper-Young is having a fundraiser for that organization on April 27.
