The Brass Bell
In everyone's life there is one person, one event, or one experience that affects who they become, the road they take. For hundreds of people in Central New York that person was Miss Parsons; that experience was their days at Cherry Road School. The Brass Bell tells the story of Marion Parsons' life, of the school she started in a hen house in the cherry orchard, of the hundreds, who decades later, still get together to talk about their Miss Parsons and their memorable times at Cherry Road School.
