School days, school days...
About 20 people attended a reunion held at the Douglas County Fair for those who attended the District 69 School, which is now located on the fairgrounds. The reunion was held Saturday, August 20.
The district, located halfway between Carlos and Miltona at the crossroads of County Road 5 and the Carlos/Miltona Road, started in 1884 and lasted until 1954. Sixteen pupils attended the first year. Teachers in the 1880s were paid between $24 and $28 a month.
