Artifacts mural at Carter Burden

The Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Program unveiled a new mural of photographed objects from the lives of seniors at the program. Photographed objects include a Butterfly McQueen doll from the movie "Gone with the Wind" that belonged to a client's mother; a tool kit left to a client by his late father; a doll one client received as a six-year-old and has treasured as a keepsake for nearly 60 years. The project is now on permanent display at the center, located on E. 109th St, between First and Second avenues. ------ Robertson Teacher Wins Blackboard Award
