Our programs are on hold. The wrestling and prom programs scheduled in March and April will be rescheduled. We will get out the word as soon as we have dates.

While we are quarantined, we are going to start the research on one-room (or two) rural Andrew County schools / school houses from our past. We hope to create an exhibit / programs on these schools in the fall or winter.

Did you attend one of the rural schools? Know someone who did? Have pictures, books, items to loan for an exhibit?

** Please let me know if you have information / stories to share.
