TEMPLETON — The Templeton Historical Museum Society is currently restoring the first Templeton School District school bus but they need some help.
The group is seeking donations in the form of volunteers, parts, paint and tools.
Robert Tullock Jr., was the gentleman who secured the piece of Templeton history and hauled it out of a ditch to preserve it for future generations. He said he was phoned by Nick Marquart who thought the historical society should have it.
“I got a call form retired Sheriff Nick Marquart. He thought we should have it so he asked if the historical society would be interested,” said Tullock. “I called the people that had it and they said I could come get it. I went out there with my truck and trailer and they lent me their tractor to haul it out. I dropped it off at my blacksmith shop that I sold to the historical society. My dad owned it and then left it to me. So the bus sat there for a while out of the weather and then David Krill took on the project. He was very interested in the project and is a Model A Club member. He has a lot of experience restoring woodies so he is a great guy for the job.”For the complete article see the 07-30-2014 issue.
