Colony school history
The first school in Colony was organized in 1876 in a one-room building. That was soon supplanted by a more adequate building that represented a community investment of $50,000. It had excellent classrooms, an auditorium, gymnasium, and domestic science equipment. Ten teachers chosen specially for various departments gave instruction. The high school students competed against other and larger high schools in debate and athletics and won a full share of honors.
The Jolly Dozen Club members met at the home of Dede McMullen Aug. 20. Roll call was answered by the dozen members telling of their favorite house each had ever lived in. Members agreed to have a float in the Colony Day Parade and make a donation to the Colony Day Committee.
Dede served a cheesy peach pie using her mothers recipe. Marilyn Thexton will host the September meeting.
The Colony Library Board met Aug. 21.
The Colony Library and Kincaid Library have purchased tote bags with both libraries and their phone numbers printed on them.
The bags, filled with local information, were given out at the Crest open house Monday.
The library has purchased a Little Free Library. When it is painted it will be placed in the business area near the diner.
The Little Free Library will contain books and magazines. Patrons may take them. When finished, they may return, keep or give tthe books away. Patrons may also donate to the Little Free Library.
Members voted to display the childrens magazines closer to the childrens books. Kloma Buckle will attend a Small Library Summit in Iola.
