Since the closing of our historic Catawba School that was built in 1913, I was dismayed at the lack of interest from the elected trustees to pursue the ownership of the school and the nine acres of property. It is inconceivable to me this precious land and school could be demolished or sold.
The maintenance of the building is indeed an expense, but renting it could defray part of that cost and once again it could be the hub for the Islanders. I am sure many of you will have ideas for the use of the building.
Let your trustees know how you feel or the school and property may be gone forever.
