Reminisce: One-room schoolhouse stories

Aug 22, 2017

West Pleasant Lawn School in the North Village on the Old Threshers grounds invites you to share memories of the one room schoolhouse experience.

If anyone has names or contact information for any living attendees, contact Sue Loescher at or 319-931-1033.
