CFA to Host Closing Ceremony

      CORNING, NY (WENY) -- As Corning Free Academy prepares to close its doors for good at the end of this school year, they're inviting the public to celebrate the school's 91 year history.
    Friday, from 6 to 8 PM, community members, alumni and staff are invited to an ice cream social and block party at the school, located on West Third Street. Visitors can enjoy a special presentation, musical performances, building tours and a time capsule, along with food and events for kids.
     The building is closing as part of the district's consolidation plan. Last September, voters approved selling the building to a developer who plans to turn it into apartments.
