Do you remember the Washington Elementary School in Shawnee?

We had a wonderful, fun, family reunion at the Shawnee Community Center which is right next door to the school. The center is on on 804 South Park Avenue. I heard there will be a Washington School Reunion Saturday September 7. 2017 at the Center.

The Akin (Pope) family got together for an awesome meal and fellowship last Saturday. The kids loved the playground.

One of the little ones asked, “Come play with us on that thing that goes around.”

“You mean the merry-go-round?”

“No, the thing that goes around.”

Guess the kids don’t have merry-go-rounds like in the old days.

Some of Sibyl Pope’s children went to this school. My Christian historical novels tell about their family. A Promise to Break and A Promise Child.

Sibyl, a banker’s daughter, met Fremont, a penniless hobo, in Shawnee during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Their story has been fun to research and write.

Here’s a few more pictures of the reunion.
