Manson Elementary School field day pictures from spring 2000. Local history projects by Manson sixth-graders in 1998 (Canoe Creek, History of Irrigation, Old Schools, William Harding Jr., Wapato Race Track, Dams on the Chelan River, Lady of the Lake, Early Manson Life) and 1999 (Old School in Stehekin, Field Hotel on Lake Chelan, Chelan and Entiat Indians). I thought these were interesting to read; there are some old pictures here.
