Knox schools reunion held at elementary

KNOX TOWNSHIP- The Knox One Room School Reunion was held June 10 at Knox Elementary School with 28 in attendance. The original 12 schools were Bridgewater, Courageville, Frog Pond, Homeworth, Mile Branch, Mill, North Georgetown, Oak Ridge, Prospect Hill, Science Hill (or Greasy Ridge), Sunny Hill and Union Grove.

Kathryn Strain introduced the Rev. Haan Phelps and his wife, Sue, new residents to the area. Phelps, pastor of the Bethel United Church of Christ, gave the invocation. All joined in the "Pledge of Allegiance" and singing of "God Bless America."

Following the meal, the business meeting was opened by singing "School Days," led by Viola Blanchard, who also read the secretary's and treasurer's reports for 2011 which were approved. Kathryn Strain reported eight deaths since the last reunion.

Union Grove had the most former students present from the 12 schools. Many attendees were pupils in the same one room building for all eight years of elementary school. Ray Sanor shared the he and his father, Earl, both were educated at Bridgewater for all eight years, and both were taught all their years by the same teacher, Carrie Stoffer.

Robert Christen of Minerva sang "Hide Thou Me." He dedicated his second selection, "Look at Us," to his sisters, Betty Ring and Lois Tasker, who were both in attendance. All had gone to Union Grove.

Patriotic centerpieces were presented to Olin Conrad, the oldest; Patti Church, the youngest; and Earl and Evaline Irwin and their grandson, Hunter Jenks, who drove the farthest, from Virginia, for the gathering. In gratitude, Christen and Blanchard each received a centerpiece- Christen for his yearly music and Blanchard for her many years serving as secretary-treasurer and keeping up the photo albums for each of the one room buildings.

A KNOX bingo game, which contained many facts about the Knox schools, was created by Eleanor Carver and played by the attendees. Prize winners were John Bradley, Robert Christen, Hunter Jenks, Haan Phelps, Marjorie Roberts, Kate Sanor and Kathryn Strain. Patti Church assisted in the game playing.
