NORTH CREEK- The next "If These Platforms Could Talk" presentation will be Friday, July 1, at 1:30 p.m. at the Depot in North Creek. Return with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear when one-room schoolhouses dotted the area. Milda Burns and Eileen Purcell's talk includes pictures of many of these historic buildings, some of which are still standing, changes in technology, including changes in dress, food, computers vs slate boards and styluses, McGuffey Readers and Spellers (one to a class not one to a student). You will actually get to study spelling and take a test using your own slate board and stylus. Bring a lawn chair. There is no charge, but donations are always appreciated. Have children or visiting grandchildren? This is a presentation they will long remember.
