What a wonderful afternoon I spent at the Russell Historical Society fair in Russell last Saturday! I was invited to be the keynote speaker and there was such an engaging audience. One teacher, one of her students, and many other people who had attended one-room schools were in attendance. I even sold 17 books! (only 35 left of 2,000) One former student admitted putting frogs under the school bell. When the teacher went to ring it, she got quite a surprise! I encourage people to check out the Keith Boyd Museum in Russell. It is a little historical gem!
