    1. School Board meets Monday at 6:00 p.m.i the Board Room at SAB

      Over 600 people have signed the petition and several members are planning to speak at the public hearing. From conversation I think we will face a fair and open minded Board and privately several members spoke in an encouraging manner. The critical component is to get the Norfolk County Historical Society and the Chesapeake Historic Preservation Commission to take the lead. A large showing at the hearing would show concern and commitment.

    2. Meeting tomorrow night...

      We have 539 signatures...hope for more before we send it to Chairman Leftwich.

      My late husband had classes in this bldg. when in Junior High; he graduated from Grt. Bridge in 1965 and told me a few stories of what sometimes went on in there. Were he alive today he'd be signing this petition. The late Harold Clendenning, a voluntyeer for CPD attended school in this building. Chesapeake and Great Bridge have few historical bldgs. left, one of them being the S.Norfolk School. My husband's aunt taught school there. Education meant a lot to the kids; especially the rural children of the Grt. Bridge area. Please don't destroy a piece of its past which is located next to the old high school. It represents this area's continued(ing) march towards education throughout the years and belief in the future.

      we need to remember what was before us in order to realize how far we have come. I would like this to showcase a museum about Great Bridge.

      My family went to GBHS, and my great aunt, Elizabeth Baum Hanbury, and other family members were and are passionate about preserving historic structures.
