Thanks for sharing the pictures of Ackworth School and my old school
which was named “Happy Hill School ” which was later given to Homen
Township as a town hall when the school was closed. My mother attended
Ackworth and I believe your father attended at the same time. As ever,
Virgil, I wasn’t aware that you mother, Voila Bjornseth Rude, attended Ackworth, but with the Pritchard’s and other close neighbors of hers having attended Ackworth, it stands to reason that she would have too. Gary

I’ve been to that general area several times since leaving ND for MN, DC and MI. It is always beautiful, and driving in some of the areas of Appalachia are as challenging as they are fun and educational. I’ve done those trips with Susan and her parents, Susan, Alaina and my older kids, and just for the hell of it when we lived in DC. There is a beauty there that is unequaled anywhere.
A rendezvous is not a bad Idea— Say Gattlinburg — Dollywood? And there is always Nashville!!!!!
