The 1921 portion of the former K-M Middle School in Mantorville is set for demolition. Dodge County recently purchased the school and has plans for the newer buildings. An opportunity to bid a fond farewell to the old school is set for Saturday, Sept. 14. Photo submitted

Visitors from far and wide are expected to gather in Mantorville at the 1921 school between 3 and 6 p.m.
The building will be open for self-guided tours with a short program at 5 p.m.
A time capsule was found behind the corner stone and it will be opened during the program and displayed, if possible. It will then be given to the Dodge County Historical Society.
Souvenir bricks will be available with any donations going to the Kasson-Mantorville Activities Department. K-M students from various clubs will be helping with the event.
The theme is "Celebrating the Past, Preparing for the Future."
