Did You Know… this is a photo from Perry in 1933. Home Economics and shop were a big part of school then. I, for one, still have some of the projects I made in shop. One bowl sat every day on my mothers kitchen table. She’s gone now, but that wooden shop bowl has moved to my house now.


The things I learned in shop, I’ve used all these years, like “righty-tighty, lefty-loosely.” I’m sure there were Home Ec. lessons learned, that have stuck as well. I hope today’s Grads made some memories and learned some things that will serve them well for the rest of their lives as well.
