Instead of our regular 2nd Thursday meeting we will have a field trip to Lydia School on Saturday, Sept 12.
Lydia School is a one-room school house that was in use from 1915-1957 for students from 1st to 7th grades It has been fully restored and furnished by Loudean Seabolt. Loudean, a young 96, will show off the slate blackboards, lard buckets used for lunch pails, books, desks, water buckets and other memorabilia from the early 1900’s. She will also tell us stories about going to school there, and about how she accomplished her 1984 restoration project.
Following the presentation we will picnic indoors at the home of Bob & Dana Whitfield, less than a mile from Lydia School. Bring your own lunch and favorite beverage. Cups plates, napkins, tea, water, lemonade and a spirit of adventure will be provided!
We will get together over lunch to talk about the programs we have had this year and make suggestions for next year’s programs.
Come and bring a friend
