Granton Rotarians Go Back To School

Aug. 24, 2010, Granton Rotarians did go back to school – to the Reed School, that is:


In a change from their normal venue at the southern Clark County Sportsman Club (SCCSC), the Rotary moved its weekly meal and meeting to the Reed School, the restored one-room schoolhouse located on the corner of USH 10 and Cardinal Ave., approximately three miles east of Neillsville.  Luckily for them, retired teacher, Tom Bobrofsky, was available to be their teacher for the evening.  He presented a program, which included the history of the school, its students and its benefactor.



During the classroom instruction, Rotarians enjoyed a sack lunch prepared by Virginia Richmond.  After the presentation, Rotary Club President, Jim “Chip” Chadwick, presented a donation to Bobrofsky for the continuation of such programs for all to enjoy.



Many Rotarians were heard to say they had attended one-room schools such as the Reed School and nostalgia was the theme for the night’s program.  Members enjoyed the evening so much they will return in the spring for “real” classroom program.



Granton Rotary meets every Tuesday evening from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the SCCSC.  Any person interested in attending a dinner/meeting should contact the current president, Chip Chadwick, at 715-238-7229.
