Person to Person – An Added Program

Mother Goose told us that a little lamb followed Mary to school one day. Bert Fernald had a goat follow him (see our current poster) and Byron Strout was followed to school by his dog, Brownie, who was invited to come inside to wait. We are up for lots more stories about school days at our next Person to Person gathering.

On Sunday, May 6, from 4:00-5:30PM, we have invited people who attended Poland’s one-room schools to share recollections in a program we’re calling, “Conversations with Scholars”. It is a follow-up to our very successful February program with Rose Aikman. The program will be preceded by an Open House at the Poland Historical Society Building, formerly the District 22 (Poland Corner) School. The building will be open from 2-4PM on the same Sunday afternoon. Everyone is invited to drop by to see the building and its exhibits.

Please note that there will be no potluck supper and that our usual meeting time has been changed as well. Light refreshments will be served.

We hope you can join us.
