|MEMORIES:||“In the fall and winter we always had…skunks. There was a break in the cement foundation where they entered and hibernated for the winter months. The odor from them almost ran us out of the school room. My father and some of the older boys in the school were always trapping them but the animals multiplied faster than they boys could trap them. This project wasn’t a specific tradition all over except in our school and always typical in the farm areas.” – Lenora Ellmann Stabenow|
