Annual School House Cleanup

Posted By on May 25, 2015

It was with some sadness combined with some good memories of the town’s beloved patriarch, Richard Mehrkens,  that we gathered as a community once again and cleaned up the school house of the little town that Richard loved so much. We lost him last Winter and we miss him. His mark on Graniteville will live on.

Graniteville had a very mild Winter. This latest Spring storm brought a dusting as shown in this photo taken this morning. Should be warm and sunny by this weekend!  There is a troublesome bear in town, helping himself (herself?) to food so be on the lookout!
