Dear Editor:

I’m trying to contact others about a Center Hill School reunion. Located between Savanna and Mount Carroll, this school was our home away from home for eight years before our transition to high school.

Please come share your memories with others at a gathering of fellow “Center Hillers” on Saturday, June 22, from 1-5 p.m. at Tipton Auction House along Illinois 84 in Thomson.

Bring along your family and share the memories of your youth with them, remembering our teachers, musicals, sports, friends and lessons learned that helped mold you into the person you are today.

Dare to take a trip down memory lane. I bet you smile a little, laugh a lot, maybe shed a tear, but no matter what, you’ll walk away feeling a little younger and a little prouder to say, “I went to Center Hill.”

Please spread the word. There will be refreshments and some pictures of different classes displayed along with school programs, too.

If anyone would like to share some of their mementoes or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 815-589-3430. It’ll be great to see you there.

Jan Knauer Cramer
