The new owners of the former Huss School building (1008 8th Street) have invited the public to the former school for a “Future Festival” this coming Saturday, July 24, from 8am-4pm. In addition to tours of the building and a giant rummage sale of school items, there will be other tables of local people with their own rummage to sell, musicians performing, and artists displaying their work.

(Bruce C Snook, the publisher of the River Country Journal, passed away August 29, 2013. We will attempt to retrieve the information in these links.) There was also a front page article in the Three Rivers Commercial-News which may still be available on the Commercial-News website if you missed it.
