Saving Our Neighborhood Schools

Sending out an S.O.S.: Save Our Schools exhibit set up to help prevent New York, Cordley from closure - Lawrence, KS

Our neighborhood schools are part of our local identities, helping to bind us together - tie us to our neighbors and helping to form the basis for integration into our larger communities.  When they close, a part of our identities die with them and we have less in common with our neighbors, whether it be through our children, nephews/nieces, god-chilren, friends, etc. who attend (or attended) these schools, or the memories of attending these schools ourselves. Our bonds grow weaker and our community suffers. We become less than we were before.

This event is "a day of imagination, creation, and possibility for our neighborhood schools." Please attend if you can.

When: Saturday, January 30, 2010, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Where: The Lawrence Percolator, Ninth and New Hampshire, Lawrence

Cost: Free
