 Old Town Trolley Tours is a Savannah icon: its orange and green cars comprise the largest trolley fleet in the city, and locals recently voted it Connect Savannah’s 2018 Best Local Tour Company.

 “The Massie Heritage Center has done incredible work to preserve its historic school and to educate locals and tourists alike through its exhibits. Old Town Trolley Tours is delighted to host this fundraiser as we celebrate 25 years in Savannah,” said Garry Patrick, general manager of Old Town Trolley Tours of Savannah.

The Massie Heritage Center: The Massie Heritage Center strives to create a greater appreciation of Savannah’s rich cultural heritage by preserving the historic Massie School as an interactive exhibit space and educational facility where both students and the general public can participate in interpretive programs that are designed to stimulate curiosity and to help achieve academic goals.

“The Massie Heritage Center congratulates Old Town Trolley Tours on 25 years of business in Savannah and is thankful for its support of our efforts to preserve Savannah’s history,” said Steve Smith, Curator of the Massie Heritage Center.

Annual May Day Celebration 2018 in Calhoun Square

For 162 years May Day has been celebrated by Massie School.  Even before there was a public Board of Education, students celebrated spring by holding a celebration for May Day with a Maypole Dance.  The celebration has changed over the years to include dances representing cultures other than the original English settlers and their customs.   Dances now include the LaRaspa, Irish Potpourri, Virgiania Reel, Cotton-Eyed Joe, the Mayim,  the Circassian Circle, and the Bele Kawe.  The  Mistress of Ceremonies was Kim Gusby of WSAV who has participated in the Massie event for about fifteen years.  Members of the School Board and administrators from the District Office also shared in the event.  Superintendent, Dr. M. Ann Levett,  School Board representatives and a representative of the Friends of Massie brought greetings to the large crowd celebrating in Calhoun Square.
