Neighborhood association presents check to mill springs cabin
The community members who live near Bradley Middle School were given a private tour of the Mill Springs Cabin Monday, November 4. They were so impressed and fascinated by the museum right in their own backyard.
At the North Central Thousand Oaks Neighborhood Association (NCTONA) meeting in the Bradley cafeteria, the members along with Speaker of the House Joe Straus presented a check to Principal Justin Oxley, history teacher Mike Bailey, and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian G. Gottardy.
The members personally raised $2,000 and the association matched that amount. The money will be used to upgrade security at the learning center. The Mill Springs Cabin was vandalized in June. Since then, community has come together to support the restoration efforts.
The Mill Springs Cabin has hosted more than 50,000 visitors since it was relocated on the campus of Bradley Middle School in 1999. It is a one-of-a-kind learning center where 7th grade students are trained to give tours to visiting elementary schools.
NCTONA has been a huge supporter of the restoration efforts at the cabin. After the association meeting, guests were given a VIP tour of the Mill Springs Cabin by the National Junior Honor Society members. Students shared the history of the cabin and why they feel it is a special part of their campus.
Speaker Joe Straus was at the NCTONA meeting to encourage voters to head to the polls on election day. He answered questions about the items on the ballot.
