As a mark of their appreciation and esteem, the teachers who had taught under the direction of Schildmacher, went to her home immediately on the adjournment of school the previous afternoon. The rooms were attractively decorated with flags, red, white and blue bunting and hearts, in keeping with the Valentine's Day season. A delicious three-course luncheon was served. At the conclusion of the repast, each person in attendance wrote an original poem pertaining to some other member. They afforded much merriment when read.
