The Chapel Church Volunteer ladies hosted about 26 Gladbrook senior citizens on Friday, September 14, 2012, at 11:30 pm at their church. Guests were treated to a lunch of ham, wedding potatoes, corn, rolls, broccoli salad, fruit salad, assorted pies, and drink. Afterwards, guests reenacted their school days. Karen Handorf read a poem, Old School Days. Mrs. Sue Koster portrayed a school teacher of years gone by. After she rang the school bell, students recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang “America.” Their classes included reading is tongue twister: Ten tiny tots trying to train their tongues to trill. Karen Handorf led history class by summarizing Gladbrook School’s history. For geography class, students named a city, state or country starting with a letter that Mrs. Koster said. In arithmetic class, they counted up points for different things, such as how many grandchildren they had. A spelling bee was held with Table Four spelling all of their words correctly: deficit, tsunami and psychology. Students sang “School Days’ during music class. Guests enjoyed sharing about their school days, including where they attended, their transportation, favorite teachers, games they played, favorite lunches, and outhouse experiences! Guest Karen Pieper announced the next senior citizen’s lunch is Friday, October 12, at the Memorial Building at 11:30 am. Please get reservations to Pat Oettchen. Teacher Sue Koster announced that class was dismissed as she rang the bell. It was a delightful afternoon, and the senior citizens also enjoyed driving out to the country to view some of the wind farm activities.
