'Final Homecoming' at LHS; Wawa on Walsingham opens

Old school sendoff: Largo High School, which will be torn down this summer for a two-year rebuilding project, is inviting alumni and the greater Largo community to a "Final Homecoming" on the evenings of May 12 and 13.

From 5 to 8 p.m. on that Monday and Tuesday, the public can walk through the school and its campus one last time before the wrecking ball swings.

Visitors can also listen to a spring concert by Largo High's band and buy memorabilia such as red bricks and pieces of the gymnasium floor. For more information, go online to

Free coffee at Walsingham Wawa: Wawa held a grand opening of its newest store Thursday afternoon at 12750 Walsingham Road. The celebration includes free coffee for the first 10 days the store is open.

Wawa is busy spreading its presence around Largo, having opened a store at Ulmerton and Starkey roads while planning another store on Missouri Avenue just north of Rosery Road. The Pennsylvania-based chain has long been popular in the Northeast for offering made-on-site deli hoagies, baked goods and gourmet coffees 24/7.

Wawa plans to open 45 new stores this year, including 25 in Florida.
