On Saturday, Nov. 5, 2005, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Stoker School, alumni and classmates will have the opportunity to listen to former Governor Rampton share his memories with us again.
In a rare public appearance, Calvin Rampton has graciously agreed to help celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Stoker School.
Many in the community have shared their childhood school days at Stoker School with us, and those memories will be published in the new updated history of Stoker School that will be available for purchase during the Open House this coming Saturday.
Special guests will include Noriene Tolman Bom-bard, daughter of David R. Tolman, who was the principal of Stoker School for 37 years from 1914 to 1951.
Another special guest will be Alex Muir, great-great-grandson of Leo J. Muir, who was the first principal of Stoker School from 1905 to 1914 and one of the foremost educators of Davis Schools for many years and was also Mayor of Bountiful from 1920 to 1922.
Others who will be recognized will be three of the last principals of Stoker School; Virlin Terry, L. Glen Tonge, and Maynard White-sides, who was the principal when Stoker School was closed to Elementary Edu-cation in 1981.
Since that time, the school has served the University of Utah as their Bountiful campus for adult continuing education.
Saturday’s activities are being sponsored by the Bountiful Historical Com-mission, and it will have many displays and information at the Open House about their quest to preserve the history of Bountiful.
It will be unveiling its plans and goal for a permanent Bountiful Museum to be built near the Willey Cabin on Main Street and will be seeking donations to raise funds for this addition to the community.
For more information contact Tom Tolman at the Bountiful Museum 296-2060 or at his home 292-1981.
