along with friends Evelyn and her mom Betsey,
drove from Nashville Tennessee,down to Auburn University..
for the "One last Roll" celebration at Toomer's corners.
The event centers around the cluster of Live Oaks at Toomer's Corner, where Auburnites gather to commemorate life events..wins, losses,graduations, engagements, weddings, farewells..

The place is considered hallowed sacred ground, a place of honor among those of Auburn. Events are memorialized by tossing rolls of toilet paper into the trees..
Several years back, a disgruntled fan poisoned the Oaks with a deadly herbicide. Many measures were undertaken to save the demise of the trees..to no avail. Today the trees were removed..
The removal Tuesday ended a two plus year attempt by Auburn University to save the trees, which were poisoned in 2010.
Lisa, Mac, Betsey and Evelyn joined thousands of Auburn fans rolling the trees for the final time Saturday and Sunday,
who were celebrating the A-Day spring football game and a national championship won by the Auburn Equestrian team.
Upon graduation from High School. Mac plans to attend Auburn..a dream she has nurtured through her entire academic years. Active in her Community, Church, School, and Special Olympics, she is a talented, gifted, well rounded young lady who will do us all proud!
while there,they toured the campus bookstore at Toomer's Drugs, the Jordan-Hare stadium, met with the cheerleaders, several dignitaries..posing for photos along the way..here's a few..
memories in the making...
