Adair County's one- and two-room schools

By Mike Watson

Thanksgiving is the time to tell stories of family and share traditions. Sit down with the youngsters and the elders of the family and share past experiences so they will not be lost to posterity.

Elders would enjoy the experience of sharing their youth, and the younger generation will appreciate--if not now, then certainly later--the opportunity to learn little-known bits of family history. And take photographs of everyone interacting. Happy Thanksgiving!
