School building was the heart of Huntsville
In this excellent letter to the editor, 57 year Huntsville fixture Erma Wilson unleashes on the Weber County School Board.
Mrs. Wilson states,
What has the Weber County School Board done to our town? As a citizen of Huntsville for 57 years, I feel like the heart of our town has been torn out because of the destroying of our Valley Elementary School building.
When we moved here in 1953, this town really had a lot of community spirit and a lot had to do with the school building. Besides the normal functions, there were dances sometimes in the evening when whole families would attend and participate. Also there were productions, weddings and ball games. One of our special principals, Carl DeYoung, allowed a formal dance to be held, with formal dresses and boutonnieres. Only people who live in a small town could appreciate what a big deal that was.
As for more somber news from Huntsville, one of the founders of the Monastery has passed at age 93.
Saying goodbye to Brother Felix
