Honoring the last rolling of Toomer’s Corner

Published 11:45am Friday, April 19, 2013

Dear Editor,

Auburn fans everywhere will experience the highs and lows of our outstanding tradition during the next few days.

On Saturday we will proudly roll the stately oaks at Toomer’s Corner for the last.

On Tuesday, April 23, the city of Auburn will begin cutting the poisoned oaks down.

The Auburn Villager, a weekly newspaper in Auburn, will be “broadcasting” both events so that Auburn people all over the world can witness them live.

An Auburn fan just needs to log on to

Auburn people will be saddened by the cutting of the oaks but strengthened by the fact that no one can dampen our tradition.
