The ‘Local’ Look Back…


The ‘Local’ Look Back…

For many of us the Girdwood K-8 School is a staple in our lives. A destination we see 5 days a week, multiple times a day. So I wanted to share a little of its history because I thought it was interesting. I found this piece in The Local News created by Four Valleys Community School, June 1981, Volume 1, Number 6, uncredited.

You Had To Have Been There…May 15th

Soups, soufflés, salads, stews, crab, chicken, cheesecake. Table after table crammed with delectable home-made delicacies. A little of this, a little of that. Lots of people talking and laughing while the music played. Blueberry mustaches and whipped cream breads.

These are impressions of the Potluck held May 15th. For many, it was the first chance to see the new Girdwood School. The gymnasium was big enough for the 250 friends and neighbors who attended. Everyone enjoyed the good food, good company and excellent music provided by The West High School Band. It was true community spirit that made this evening a success. Thanks to everyone who made it possible.
