CRESTVIEW —  A poem in honor of May Day, a local celebration organized by the Carver-Hill Memorial & Historical Society, was penned by Crestview resident Frankie Skanes. This year's celebration was May 24 in Crestview.

The poem also pays tribute to Caroline Allen, who served as a teacher at Carver-Hill School, closed due to integration in 1969. Allen devoted several years to sustaining the Carver-Hill Museum and Fairview Park complex. The park, located at 895 McClelland St., Crestview, has been named Allen Park in her honor.
