Table Rock says goodbye to its school

By Ray Kappel
 
TABLE ROCK – In 1874, the frame school was built to replace the one room stone school that was built in 1862. That was the beginning of the Table Rock school. The staff and students held a celebration with some of their friends from the community Friday to honor the closing of the school for next school year. In 1884, the school building was moved to the present site. The first class graduated in 1888. The brick building was erected in 1902 for $10,400 and stood until 1963. In 1933-34 the addition for the auditorium and gym was built as a CWA project. In 1964, the new elementary wing and gym were added.

The late Alan Richard awarded the Pawnee City Chamber of Commerce Carolyn Van Horne Civic Award

The late Alan Richard was awarded the Van Horne Civic award for 2015. Richard left us far too soon, but, his love for this community shines on through the many projects that he dearly loved and promoted. He worked diligently with the Economic Development board in aiding to secure grants for various entities which helped start new businesses in our area; to build the Red Bud project homes; to promote tourism in all of southeast Nebraska; to efficiently move forward with the building of the Pawnee City Assisted Living. The hours this one man put into all of these things are by far unable to be counted.
