A few weeks ago a decision was made that it should be rubbed clean and used as an upcoming events board. Being the sentimental person that I am I was distraught.

I was so happy that a part of the wall was going to survive after all.

The last 2 pictures are what remains of what used to be. 

What did I tell you? That wall had some really great messages. My only regret is I didn't think of taking pictures of it before it was wiped off. I guess I took it for granted and just never thought it would be gone one day. Thank you, you who used permanent markers - because of you a part of the recognition wall remains alive.
