The Cherokee County Retired School Personnel (CCRSP) recently hosted an open house at the Lily of the Valley School house on Sunday, Oct. 11. Over 80 people toured the school from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. that day. The school is located on the campus of Northwest AEA on the Iowa Hwy. 3 bypass on the Northeast side of Cherokee. This occasion marks the completion of another summer of hard work by many volunteers. Earlier this year the CCRSP asked for volunteer help with several projects that were completed during the summer. The goal of the CCRSP was to preserve the one-room schoolhouse and showcase Iowa's rich educational heritage.
