PELKIE PROUD–Liz Hakola, right, addresses the crowd that came out to search for new uses for the recently closed Pelkie School building. Nearly 40 people attended the meeting to brainstorm for ways it can continue to contribute to the community. Built in 1932, the school was closed at the end of this school year due to steadily decreasing enrollment. A second meeting is planned for August.

The Pelkie School Transformation is officially underway. Nearly 40 people gathered at the school building Wednesday, June 17, 2015, to begin formulating a plan for the building’s future use.
Ideas ranging from continuing education to recreation to a lender’s library with a coffee shop were shared by a group eager to preserve a landmark. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
