Seeing both sides of: Duncan Elementary’s 100th
The case for
It’s great for the community to celebrate the school’s centennial, coming on April 5.
Obviously, a lot of people have gone to school there during the 100 years of its existence.
Many remain in the community and will surely be sharing those fond memories with the younger members of ther families, who won’t get the same privilege.
The case against
It’s sad there won’t be a 200th anniversary or even a 101st, for that matter.
The best hope is the school district will utilize the space in the future for some of its needs so it remains a fixture in the community for a long time to come.
The grand old building on Nagle Street deserves that occupation at the very least for the way it’s stood the test of time through wars and peace.
