Not so long ago Winslow Township had eight small schools with no indoor plumbing. At 8:00 PM on Monday July 2nd following our regular business meeting, Bob Wyce will describe his impressions as a child when arriving in flat South Jersey from the mountainous coal regions of Pennsylvania over a half century ago. He will then concentrate on his experiences attending the Bates Mill School, and helped by his life long friend Jim (Smokey) Lombardo, who’s family provided three generations of custodial services for the school, will discuss its history, teachers and "adventures" encountered during their attendance. He will also discuss the two previous Bates Mills Schools that he has researched. Come and reminisce about the past with us.
All are invited, admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
