In this nostalgic piece, Gladys Bacheller Booth reflects on the memories of her family that were connected to the Callender, Potter and Mumford schools, all of which were attended by the Point children for years but were then abandoned. She reflects on stopping at Ladyman's candy shop, on the corner of Elm and Third, or Bubba Langley's shop on Chase street for his wonderful homemade candy, on playing in the school yard until the bell rang, on walking home at 11: 30 a.m. home for lunch, and back again by 1 p.m. She combines such recollections and lamentations with the history of each school.
