1938: JUNIOR 3's "RIDING CLUB"
A riding club?"This was the era when it didn't cost $10,000 or more per year to educate a child. One of my favorite subjects over these many years has been the evolution of the school system in the local area. One glaring feature that stands out that is no longer in the 2012 educational lexicon are clubs that are aimed at cultural and societal student development. Hamilton High school, and I assume other schools of the earlier years had clubs with such quaint titles as "Etiquette," "Model Building," "Radio," "Music Appreciation," "Dance," and the list goes on. A "Riding" club was not in our directory of clubs at Hamilton High, but it sure would have been nice!
