This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What fun we had at our Centennial Celebration of the opening of Garden Home School in 1912! Classmates, displays, coffee and donuts, lunch sandwich rolls, transcriber table, slides and photos of school classes, brief program and FUN filled the gymnasium.

A hearty THANK YOU to all who helped at our big event. As one lady told me, “There was so much to see and do that I’m not sure I saw it all.” We had about 100 registrations and sold about 65 calendars. We consider thia great turn-out.

Check out the 75 photos taken by our webmaster Stan Houseman and find your friends and classmates. Please help me with any wrong or missing names. We’re busy following up on the wonderful stories we heard.

Ginny Mapes, Franz Bome, Elaine Shreve

The transcriber table was new this year and contributed about 15 short stories that have been integrated into various other stories on the website.
