MOLSON – The Molson School House Celebration will be held on July 26 starting at 10 a.m. in honor of the building’s 100th year.

To celebrate there are activities planned at the old brick schoolhouse, which now serves as a museum, and at the Molson Grange Hall, according to the organizers. Participants are also being encouraged to visit nostalgic Old Molson as part of their day.

“The celebration includes demonstrations, vendors, a scavenger hunt and much more,” said Elva Rice Helm, a graduate of the former school. “People are also invited to share their past and present memories by writing on various posters that will be placed around the area.”

A parade is planned around 11 a.m. and there will be games, and door prizes. In addition, food available for purchase throughout the day. Music by the Wilders will start at 1 p.m. and Arnie Marchand and Andrew Joseph will be on hand for book signings.

Alumni and everyone are welcome to attend, said Helm.
