In November, 1974 the officers of the Hay Jay Community Association signed the deed transferring ownership of their school and property to the Williams County Historical Society. In recognition of this 40th anniversary, on Sunday, August 3rd, the Hay Jay school will be open to the public from 1:00pm – 4:00 pm. Pack an old-fashioned picnic and come join the WCHS for lunch on the lawn (remember chairs and a blanket). Lemonade and cookies will be provided. You can enjoy croquet, rolling a hoop, three-legged races, jump rope and other recreation. Spence Meloun will be the presenter at 18441 County Road 8.
This event is for all those who may have had friends or relatives who attended or taught in any one-room school; those who would like their children and/or grandchildren to experience what school was like from 1877 – 1956; and anyone who wishes to participate in the activities of the Williams County Historical Society. Really, everyone is invited. See you then!
