Yes, it was 1915 when our little park was first cleared - we celebrated by having events like the Auction, Lunch and Variety Show in the Park, not in the Hall. Those that came watched dramatized scenes of milestones in the story of our Park and the first school also begun in 1915. People also took the time check out the newly re-surfaced trails.
If you have any photos or memories of the Hall you'd like to share with us, contact us at email@example.com and we'll get something organized.
