Reception for Teachers (*12 September 1928)


Following the custom of former years, the Neillsville W.C.T.U. gave a reception for teachers in Neillsville schools and teachers of the Indian School at the Congregational Church *Wednesday evening. A committee of the W. C. T. U. had placed a bouquet on the desk of each teacher on the opening day of the schools.  This too had often been done in years past, with the thought that many of the new teachers especially would more quickly feel at home in Neillsville if individuals and organizations took pains to show an active interest in the teachers and the schools.


The program *Thursday night had been arranged by a committee and Mrs. G. W. Longenecker presided. 


It was as follows:


Address of Welcome, Mrs. B. H. Peterson, President of the local Union.


Piano duet, Mrs. Jesse Scott and Miss Ruth Huckstead; Reading by Mrs. Adolph Unger;


Solo, Miss Marguerite Dufay, Mrs. Louis Buddenhagen, accompanist;


A Reading, by Mrs. Buddenhagen; and the Address by Rev. C. A. Rawson


Clarence Imislund was called upon for something in his line of humorous entertainment and responded with an impersonation.  Various games and stunts were introduced which served to get the local people in touch with the teachers and thus get acquainted with one another.


Prof. Hansen in a general way introduced each teacher to all present.  After the program a lunch was served in the church basement.


Nearly all Neillsville teachers were present, and Miss Kippenhan and Miss Hauser of the Indian School were in attendance, also a few other guests.  It was a very pleasant gathering.


*Now I am confused, was it on Wednesday or Thursday evening!
