Large crowd says goodbye to Ashton Creek Elementary

Former students, teachers and residents gather one last time

Ashton Creek residents have had a chance to say goodbye to an important part of their community.

More than 100 parents, grandparents, former and current students, staff, teachers and community members attended the closing ceremony for Ashton Creek Elementary Monday.

The event included entertainment, some history, funny stories and a few teary farewells.

The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District decided earlier this year to close the school because of decreased enrolment.

Students from Ashton Creek and Kingfisher will attend school in Enderby starting in September.
