Victoria School gathering for 7th reunion

It was a beautiful day for a gathering.  This was the 7th reunion for Victoria school S. S. #28.  The school was located between Maryhill and Bloomingdale.  The reunion was held at the home of Danny and Diane Strickler just outside of Maryhill.

In the summer of `896, a Union School was built for less than $3,000 with an acre of land purchased from Matthew Durrant for $40.  This one-room white brick school was known as Union School #28 until 1908, when it was then called Victoria School.  This school closed in June 1964, with student going on to Bloomingdale, Winterbourne or Maryhill.

Even with the small group attending on Sunday, September 11th much reminiscing took place and lots of laughter.  It is always wonderful to see a former teacher Mrs. Catherine (Duff) Hoelscher.
