This is the new Protestant Reformed school located in Doon, Iowa. This picture appeared in the Doon Press with the accompanying write-up:
“Months and years of planning culminated last Monday in what for many area families was a red letter day. The day was Monday, August 28, 1967—the opening day of the newly formed Northwest Iowa Protestant Reformed Christian School. The school is a parentally-controlled grammar school, operated by the N.W. Iowa P.R. Christian School Society with membership in the Doon and Hull Protestant Reformed Churches, and is state-chartered educational institution. Enrollment in the opening term numbered 39 students. These are from the Doon, Hull, Rock Valley and Rock Rapids area. Administrator for the school and teacher of grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 is Mr. Fred Hanko of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Teaching grades one thru four is Mrs. Edw. Van Egdom of rural Doon. The school’s board of directors are, Edw. Van Egdom, pres., Doon; George Hoekstra, vice-pres., Hull; Gerald Vanden Top, sec., Rock Rapids; Elmer Vanden Top, treas., Rock Valley; John Hoekstra, Hull; and Ben Bleyenburg, Sioux Center. The school is constructed of steel and includes two classrooms, two restrooms, a furnace room, supply room, and a large multipurpose room. The building is located 3 blocks north of the Bank on highway 167. A dedication date is planned for later.”
And may we extend the congratulations of the entire membership of our denomination!
