Memories Of Foss - Poem by Marilyn Lott

There is nothing like old photos
To show just how things used to be
So they dug out pictures of Foss
To enjoy with their school family

The old Livery feed and stable
Old and brown with the times
But it perfectly brings back
Memories they wanted to find

Foss school photos are great
Why, it shows the size of the class
Attended at this school long ago
After so many years have past

Photos of the bank back then
A tractor that’s a classic today
But that’s all from the past
Not the way things would stay

They have a new generation
To tell about the fire in 1908
Renewal was a necessary
New things to bring to the plate

So here is the comparison, folks
Of back over a century
Photos they gathered for the reunion
For all their classmates to see!
