On Sunday, September 13th, the Salem Area Historical Society, owners of the Jarvis Stone School Local Historic District, held the South Salem Stone School Mural Dedication, which was well attended by family members of Don Riddering and Irene Lyke, past students and SAHS Members. Thanks to Lee Holland for the donation to SAHS that made the Mural possible and to Gregg Bugala, the Muralist, for the creative effort that resulted in this beautiful mural.
On Friday, September 4, 2015, the school mural has been completed and installed on the north wall of the Jarvis Stone School (aka South Salem Stone School District #3).
The mural, which was funded by a donation from Mr. Lee Holland, honors the school’s 110 years (1857-1967) of continuous education to the community, Irene Lyke, who was instrumental in transferring ownership of the school to SAHS, and Don Riddering, who lead the school’s restoration effort. Wojiech Walek built the mural board, frame and stand and installed it against the school’s north wall. Gregg Bugala was the Muralist, who helped design it and painted it.
The dedication will be at 1 PM on Sunday, September 13th. All are invited to attend.
