On Sept. 8, 2006, Seneca School staff members Adele Cerny, Bobbie Gilmore, and Andrea Officer helped Judith Beaudet Reed enjoy her retirement gift of a stay at the Riverside Schoolhouse B&B in Prairie City. That evening, in the cozy, rustic comfort of the old schoolhouse, the foursome planned the Seneca School History Project goals and activities for the 2006-2007 school year.

Ideas ran rampant until the wee hours of the morning.
