Demolition for the older section of Bath Elementary is scheduled to begin Wednesday, July 31st. We do not have an exact "start" time as it is contingent upon weather and other unforeseen events.

Bricks will be available (free of charge). There will be a stack of bricks outside the construction fence for people to take as a keepsake. The district will be keeping a small portion of bricks for potential future memorials.

Next week is the Wye Road Bridge Lighting!

The Bath Business Association sponsors this annual event on the Friday after Thanksgiving, starting at 5:30 pm.

Families and community members gather to watch Santa arrive and the holiday lights at the Wye Road Bridge as a way to usher in the holiday season.

There is the bridge and Christmas tree lighting; caroling; cookies, hot chocolate and coffee; goody bags for the young people; visits from Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and the Hale Farm & Village costumed interpreters and always the much-anticipated arrival of Santa Claus. Children line up to meet with Santa and to share their holiday wishes as the culmination of one of Bath’s seasonal, holiday traditions.
