Cameron had its 90th birthday.
It was bittersweet (sad and happy at the same time) because it was also a goodbye. Cameron and Jefferson elementary schools joined together. All of the kids moved to Maplewood. Jefferson became a high school. Cameron closed.
Cameron had a rich history.
The hallways were filled with articles, pictures, plaques and so many memories. There wasn't a bare space to spare. One hallway had a huge timeline for people to sign.
The program had speakers, past principals and dancing and singing.
One of the highlights was Tannis Bator telling the history of Cameron. Some of the speakers were former parents and students. Mrs. Vesteka was a big part of planning the celebration.
There were almost 1000 people who came to celebrate.
People came to see old friends and teachers. They came to have birthday cake and hear the stories. But most of all they came to say, "Goodbye."
