Seeds, Geck & Charlie

The Heart of the Community

The First Community Building was completed in 1923. There were three notable leaders in the early years. Old Charlie Williams was not only Executive Director but also “poet, entertainer, after-dinner speaker, disciplinarian, jokester [and] friend.” Miss Iona Geckler – Geck – was the office manager and substitute gym teacher for 41 years. And Miss Francis Seederly – Seeds – was the Women’s and Girl’s Director who took children, including Mrs. Ruth Basner, camping (Basner 176-77).
