The performances ranged from Shakespeare to Gilbert and Sullivan to E. B. White’s, “Charlotte’s Web.” All choral concerts took place in the multi and many times the crowds stood in rows one behind the other extending down the hallway past what is now the library.
All classes had two periods a week of physical education. So, when two classes were scheduled at one time, one would be in the gym and one in the multi. The walls were always adorned with either the childrens’ art or the backdrop for a play. An upright piano was usually on the floor of the multi and needed to be moved before each PE class. One day the teacher asked some students to push the piano over, and they did. Three or four got along the keyboard side and ~ pushed and within seconds the piano was lying on its back. No damage done, but a lesson learned.
There was something special about the room. Two memorial services were held in it and one couple passing through enjoyed the art work so, they decided to get married in the multi!
Now, with the gym and new music room used for large assemblies, the multi is used for small gatherings and as a place for quiet learning times.
