The ADM Alumni Association is a great resource not just keeping up with former schoolmates, but also for the history of Adel.
Audrey (Harsh) Countryman submitted the below photo, taken 70 years ago, to the Association.
Above Caption: A few days ago a style show was held at the school building and a feature of the show was the group of girls pictured above.
They were demonstrating to the visitors that the girls in home economics class – known as “Future Home Builders” – had already made a splendid start. They made the dresses for the Red Cross and their work will bring to some little girls much happiness and comfort. They will be shipped to national headquarters this week and later sent to European countries.
In the picture, reading from left to right, back row, are: Joey Frush, Rosalie Vance, Miriam Cassady, Dorothy Lint, Janice Burger, Janis Knupp and Renee Spillers.
