The congenial picnic dinner on the last day of the rural school year, which all students, their family and neighbors attended. Loads of food were brought by all and ice cream by the teacher in a three or five gallon container, packed in salt and ice to keep it cool.
The men played cards, the women chatted, the older boys and girls played ball, and the younger ones wandered in and out of the schoolhouse. Almost an entire day was consumed in this friendly, social atmosphere, embracing family and friends.
