Vale Middle School alums invited to picture day on 4th of July

VALE – If you attended Vale Middle School then you are invited to participate in a group photo outside the building July 4.

A group of local volunteers organized the event.

“The idea behind it is to just document a little bit of history and show the impact that a building or a place can make in the lives of community members,” said Jessica Kulm.

Kulm, the president of the Vale Chamber of Commerce, said the photo is set for 6 p.m. just after the Vale 4th of July Rodeo Parade.

Kulm said interested individuals will gather at the front doors of the middle school for the photo. A new middle school – just behind Vale High School - is nearly finished. The old middle school is scheduled for demolition.

“It is a cool opportunity to preserve a little history . . .
