*Picture taken by lunch room. Wannaska River in backround...Edith (Dahl) Nelson and Doris Rasmussen, 1st cooks for hot lunch program at Wannaska School. I remember when we went to school we were still using the outhouses. Seemed like there were endless holes and all the girls chattered as they went about their business. huh? Yep! There was a woodshed with a humongous bunch of wood in it and if you were first out on recess, you could claim it for making your fort in the shed. I don't know if we would've gotten in trouble for it (may have been an unwritten rule). If you were unfortunate enough to not get the wood shed you could always go over to the wooded area to the side of the schoolgrounds and make a fort there. Roxanne Eggen and Gary Bergstrom were always the king and queen or mom and dad, if I remember right. They wanted us to bow to them AS IF, so we wouldn't play with them anymore. They never cared because they were very popular and there was always someone that would do the work in the invisible fort. (Now how hard could that have been for me to clean an invisible fort?) Must have been a matter of pride.
