Comments: Hi Dave, What a great job you have done and are still doing. You once asked me if I had taught school in Manning-I did not. I am the only heir left of Jurgen @ Anna Hinz. Dad was director of Ewold Twnsp #2 school for 18 years. I don't know if he ever got any pay for that but I do remember every August we loaded up brooms, mops, cleaning rags & etc and en masse we went up to that school & scrubbed it clean. Who taught there? - I remember Captolia Hinrichs Greteman, her sister Margaret Butterworth (for a short time & a "sub")
