The Township of Bruce Historical Society unveiled a commemorative Cairn on Friday, June 1st, that brought back many memories for those who attended the ceremony.
Rev. David Chang of Knox Presbyterian Church in Tiverson officiated at the ceremony while Historical Society member, Herb Henkenhaf highlighted some of the school’s events of the past.
The Cairn was constructed from brick saved from the original schoolhouse that many had attended as young students. S.S. #14 had been located on the 12th concession in the Township of Bruce just east of Hwy. 21 on the land that now is the Barry Ribey farm. While the building is no longer there, the Cairn serves as a reminder of a bygone era and carries within it a time capsule filled with memories.
Following the unveiling, those in attendance moved to the Underwood Community Centre for the annual general meeting and dinner and where they had a chance to see memorabilia from the school, including text books and student slate chalkboard.
