Want one final tour of Middletown Area High School before it is demolished this summer?
The Middletown Area High School Alumni Association is offering two more tours – in May – to give alumni and community residents a chance to relive school memories and take one last glimpse, according to a post on its Facebook page.
The tours will be held:
• Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to noon
• Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to noon
The association previously offered tours of the school during Homecoming week in October.
The school will be replaced by a new school under construction nearby on the Lower Swatara Twp. campus.

A new nonprofit foundation to benefit students in the Middletown Area School District could be up and running by August, but a lot of work has to be done between now and then.
A proposed name – the Middletown Blue Raider Foundation – and a mission statement were among the boxes checked on Wednesday, Jan. 6, during the first meeting of an ad hoc committee that the Middletown Area School Board has formed to create a foundation.
The foundation would raise donations to support projects and programs that benefit students – things the school board cannot afford to fund through the traditional budget process.
