hand to workDarrow School, New Labanon, NY

Hands to Work, Hearts to God (3/32-inch wire, approx. 2 X 10 feet) after the Shaker saying adopted by the high school I attended from 1956 to 1960 -- Darrow School, New Labanon, NY -- which made it's home in an abandoned and refurbished Shaker Village in the Berkshire Mountains. Putting an all-boy student body to work once a week and -- in my case -- working off penalty hours on the weekends, served a young, developing campus well. These days, it's an upscale college preparatory school, "Hands to Work" is largely a character-building exercise, and there are girls -- a definite improvement, as far as I'm concerned.
