Sounds of the past to return
Times photos: Brian Gray Rev. Paul Gregersen, pastor of Clarno Zion United Methodist Church, stands in the doorway of the Clarno East School, located about a mile east of Clarno. The church is remodeling the school to use it for church activities and also to offer it to the community for other events. The church bought the school in the early 1960s for $1. Remodeling in the interior of the school has been going on for several months and is expected to be completed by fall.
MONROE - The sounds of children laughing, the songs of their Christmas concerts, and squeals of excitement as they left school for summer vacation can no longer be heard, but the memories of what the simple one-room school house in Clarno meant to the community have remained.
