  • Bessie Norris Memorial Fund

    Bessie Norris Memorial Fund

    Bessie Norris was Principal at the East School (at East Main St and North Spruce St). This was to be used for the benefit of the pupils and teachers of John Kennedy School. It was apparently the remaining proceeds from the 1954 East School PTA's "East End Romp." It was originally established to provide for the needs of John Kennedy School that were not normally provided for through the school district budget and allowed the school to use up to $100 per year. This fund was turned over to the JK Home School Association.
