School Days with the Vernon Historical Society

Jessi explained the idea of inviting original teachers and students the 2nd weekend of October to Prices Switch Schoolhouse for an educational and fun tour of the schoolhouse. Mary said we could possibly set up a Recreation table at the event and share her binder of Recreational activities.

Student Member of Board of Recreation

Mary sent a request to the schools. We are looking for another [or several more] student members to join Justin on our Recreation Board.

Roller Hockey Rink

Frank asked about feasibility, mentioned using plywood flooring, cement, white paint to create in-town roller hockey rink. It would be a great venue for teens, and ice hockey teams could use it for practice.
