The director of the Tipitina's Creative Co-op in Commerce, Rick Parent, says work crews have begun preparing to provide electrical power to the old A.L. Day Elementary School building in Commerce. That will be a major step in Tipitina's occupying the building at 905 College Street, one block east of Park. Currently, Tipitina's operates in an auxilary building adjacent to A.L. Day. Rick says he'll be offering photography classes soon, and Tipitina's is now hosting creative-arts parties.
