Historical Society Meeting – June 17th – Schools

Maynard High School - 1970On Monday, June 17th, the Maynard Historical Society will present a program on the history of the Maynard Public Schools.  Starting at 7pm, the program will take place in the Maynard High School Library and will be one of, if not the last, public event to take place in the High School, which is slated for demolition this summer.

In addition to the program, we will have a number of artifacts and photographs related to the schools and our complete collection of yearbooks dating back to 1907.  The Society’s yearbook collection is very thin after 1965, so anyone who wishes to donate an MHS Screech Owl yearbook dating from 1965 to the present can bring it to the meeting and we will gratefully accept it into our archives.

Following the program you will be free to walk the halls of Maynard High School for the last time.   So join us on the 17th and take a trip down memory lane.

The meeting is open to the public and light refreshments will be served.

What: Maynard Historical Society Spring Meeting
