John Janzen scrapes and paints the one-room School

In the month of July, John Janzen took on the big project to scrape and paint the South Bloomfield one-room school house.  

The Museum can only survive if we have volunteers to help. " Thank You John ! ! ! " And " Thank You " to any others that lent a hand here and there for this project.
