All are welcome to join Churchill County leadership for a dedication and ribbon-cutting for the middle building of the Cottage School, the new home of Parks & Recreation’s after-school CARE program, on March 31 from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
This historic building saw kindergarteners educated in it in the early- and mid-20th century. County Facilities refurbished the building with new flooring, paint, windows, roof repairs and other upgrades to house the 70+ children in the county’s CARE program. Features in the building include small bathroom fixtures, low chalkboards and coat hooks and floor level cubby storage space. The old intercom system, original to the building, still functions.
Refreshments, a site walk-through and program reflections will be offered for free to those attending.
The Cottage School is located at 255 East Stillwater Avenue in Fallon. It came into county ownership by way of a trade last October with the City of Fallon for the former county-owned Senior Center building on Court Street.
