Major the Bull sculpture in Durham NC’s CCB Plaza in African attire

My cousin, 99-year-old Julia Tapp, was recently recognized as a West End Elder by the Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice. Cousin Julia says that she remembers seeing Pauli Murray riding up and down the street on her bicycle when she was a kid. 

Cousin Julia used to handcraft the most delicious sweet potato pies for the Chicken Hut (which was founded by her brother Claiborne Tapp Jr. Trey, the current co-owner, is her nephew).

Once a year, Durham seniors engage in friendly competition with members of the Durham police Department at the Durham Center for Senior Life. They play jenga, shuffleboard, cornhole, billiards, BINGO, they make puzzles, and enjoy refreshments during one afternoon of fun.

RDU Airport’s Observation Park is back! This is a great place to take the family on a free outing, where everyone can watch the airplanes take off from a safe vantage point. You can park for free, listen to communication between the pilots and the control tower, enjoy the picnic and play areas, look at the educational placards (test your knowledge of airplanes!), and use the modern restrooms. Observation Park will be open every day from 9am to dusk.

Did you know we don’t have to pay for bus fare until at least June 2024? How DO they do it?
