Celebration of St John School's 125 Anniversary

I previously posted an article in this blog about St John School's celebration of its 125th anniversary. The celebration will take place during the July 4 weekend in Seward.

I wish I could be there, but I already am over-committed for vacation time and expenses for this year. A couple of family illnesses have made this year an impossible year for me to justify a pleasure trip to Seward.

I hope that somebody who does attend will write an article about the celebration and send it to me so that I can post it on this blog. If several people write articles, then I'll post all of them. The more, the merrier.

Also, all readers of this blog who attend should tell everyone else there about this blog and should ask around for old photographs, documents and memoirs.

Current information about the town's Fourth of July celebration is detailed in this link, which includes many details about the St John school events.

St John School's website includes a webpage with information about the school's anniversary celebration. As of today, the scheduled events are:
