Memories of wearing white on May Day at Nash County Training School. Momma was making red candied apples with her students. Mrs. Clyde Harris, had all third grade girls dressed in white. Boys wore dark pants and a clean shirt. We all wore finger woven sashs in bright colors woven by Elders. My Yat wove mine in green, pink and yellow wool yarn. The band played. We danced. We sank. We wrapped a pine pole with every color crepe paper streamers weaving ourselves over and under each other.

Oh how I remember wrapping the May Pole at Brawley High School. And my Mom making red candied apples for the fun filled day! Such a beautiful thing.
