Friends recall school days at Senior Center event

Calhoun County once had over 100 one-room schools during the first part of the last century, with some of them expanding to two, three and four rooms.

This weekend there was a school reunion for the mostly forgotten schools - Upper Rush Run, Fairview, Union and Russett.

About forty former students and their families gathered at the Grantsville Senior Center to look at old pictures, share memories and enjoy a luncheon.

The Upper Trace and Nobe School reunion was also held at the Nobe Community Building Saturday.

(L to R) Helen Suttle, Virgil Suttle and Bernice Stump recall school
days at Russett and Apple Farm. Ms. Stump taught at Rush Run.
