A couple of things:

🌟 Craft new plans this summer and pick up a hobby or two. Here’s where to learn five heritage crafts in Birmingham, including bluegrass music.

🌟 We’ll be frank with you—this building could use a makeover. Luckily Orchestra Partners is renovating the Frank Nelson Building in downtown Birmingham into something pretty cool. 👀

🌟Congratulations to the Alabama High School Athletic Association’s (AHSAA) new executive director, Alvin Briggs. He makes history as AHSAA’s first African-American executive director.
