Tower Notes: Almost Home is the community poem written for the 50th Anniversary of the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower. Poet and sculptor David Williamson facilitated the creation of this poem with the Tower View Team as they gathered memories throughout the summer of 2016. A group of 17 people worked with David to choose phrases and ideas from the many entries.
David read the poem for the first time at the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Mahanay Bell Tower on October 16, 2016. Listen as he reads the poem aloud.
