Stucky will speak about his recent findings and research completed in the area, including the Indians, early settlers and Marion County trails.

Stucky teaches art and photography at Goessel Elementary and High School and wrote a book titled “Hallowed Hardwoods” about some of the vintage basketball gyms of Kansas. It was published in 2003.
The session will be at 9:45 a.m Friday, Oct. 19 in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center on the Tabor campus.
Lifelong Learning meets regularly through the fall and spring semesters. Fees are $4 per session or $15 per semester ($29 per couple) payable at the door.
