ST. MARYS — For 86 years, Memorial High School stood at the center of St. Marys and was a gathering place for the community.
“The old school was the center of our community for generations — for 86 years to be exact,” Author Buz Howard read from his newest book, “The Life and Times of Memorial High School: A Pictorial History, 1924-2010” Tuesday night. “From 1924 to 2010, it stood majestically right in the center of our town.”
ST. MARYS — A school trip to Washington, D.C. that was canceled because of Hurricane Sandy is back on.
St. Marys Superintendent Shawn Brown told The Evening Leader he received notification from K&K Tours that the eighth-grade trip will be rescheduled for a later date. The trip was canceled on Monday because of the impending storm — which caused massive devastation along the eastern seaboard.
Pre-sale tickets for Minster's Friday home playoff football game against Tri County North will be sold on Thursday at the high school from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets will also be sold on Friday at the elementary school from 7:45 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. and at the high school from 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Presale tickets are $7. All tickets at the gate are $9. Minster will keep a portion of all pre-sale ticket sales.
ST. MARYS — As Hurricane Sandy smashed into the East Coast on Monday, the massive storm also forced the cancellation of St. Marys Middle School’s eighth-grade trip to Washington, D.C.
St. Marys Superintendent Shawn Brown said initially plans were to delay the trip 24 hours, and then reassess the situation. However, as Sandy continued to pound the eastern seaboard, Brown said it became more clear the trip was in jeopardy.
