A sad time in a little corner of Lexington as the Athens School closes down

athens-school.jpgAs we start the school year, our little village of Athens just outside of Lexington, Kentucky, saw the doors of Athens School close after 80 years of operation.  The students moved to a more technologically advanced and modern facility in an area subdivision.  Their school is called Athens-Chilesburg Elementary School and is already packed to the rafters with kiddos.

Many of our older folks in our church graduated from this school.  You can read about it by clicking on the article from the Lexington Herald-Leader.   It’ll only be up for a short time.

Any of you out there ever gone through seeing an old beloved church or school shut its doors?  Feel free to share your experiences.  It may help others going through the same issue!
