The community of Cottage Grove is invited to attend the Latham Elementary Community Celebration on Friday, May 31, when Latham will close its doors for the last time following the school board’s decision to close the school last January.
The school has been in existence since 1853.
An open house will take place from 5 to 6 p.m., with refreshments being served. Guests will receive a passport that will take them on a guided tour of the building. Once the passport is complete, guests will receive a special commemorative gift.
Then, from 6:15 to 7 p.m., a Community Celebration will take place in the gymnasium with a guest speaker, Cottage Grove Mayor Jeff Gowing, who is a former Latham student.
