Adams, You WERE The Very Best

That was then ...

This is now ....

A few weeks ago we were heading out to the airport to pick up our rental car for our spring break cruise and our jaws dropped as we drove by our old high school! We've read newspaper articles and heard rumors about the demolition but since we no longer live in the neighborhood we were not aware of a this scheduled event.
How very sad ... so many memories ... so many dreams, plans, friendships made ... now the last high school built in the Portland Public School District lies in rubble. I wish there had been some kind of alumni "farewell" and a time of closure.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this property.
As our school song went. "Adams, you are the very best. Adams, better than all the rest ....." Goodbye!
