Title The Ephraim Co-Op
Description After a time our feet no more Raced the stairs and scuffed the floor. Another school house drew us in, Left the upstairs empty again. Others asked the Relief Society to sell The second floor, they'd use it well. Canute Peterson had this idea in 1888, To launch a Stake Academy on that date. Produce, dances and donation paid For a pot-bellied stove, benches laid. One hundred twenty-one students came. Records list each person's name. Alma Greenwood and Carrie Henry Enrolled students from eleven past twenty, From the seventh grade through college age. Some sat in the gallery, others the stage. Many stories these rooms could tell For sixteen years is "quite a spell." The academy grew, built on a new block. On the old mercantile store was a lock. In 1902 the Co-Op closed its door. Dances, plays, school were no more. An era was ended, a new one begun, A machine shop, a garage, a mill run. Many have since made a living there, Changed the rooms, torn down the stair, Kept it a busy and useful place, Building memories time cannot erase. Battered and worn, time to rest. The old Co-Op, one of the best.
