November 17th 2018 – Remembering One Room Schoolhouses of Yesteryear
presented by Marilyn Snedden
Ottawa Public Library – Stittsville Branch
Join Marilyn Snedden as she brings back memories of the rural schools that once dominated our landscape.
Typical of many schools in Ontario a wood stove and later an oil furnace was used for heating. Water was obtained from a hand operated outside pump. Until the 1950’s there were often no indoor toilets. One teacher supervised eight grades and handled 20 to 30 students. Many of these schools were closed by 1996. Come and enjoy and afternoon of recollections.
Marilyn Snedden is an lifelong and active volunteer in Mississippi Mills. We are delighted to have her for our November event.
This event is being held in the Ottawa Public Library – Stittsville Branch on Saturday November 17 2018 at 1:30pm. Parking and refreshments are free. Please tell a neighbour and bring a friend.
