Did you notice something different to our Menu?
We made a few changes that conform to more concise topic headings used on web sites. Historical Resources is now Historical Texts. Historical Moving Images has been changed to Historical Videos.
New yearbooks from Mount Saint Joseph Academy have been added to our Yearbooks page. Take a look at the current yearbooks from 2014-2016.
Can you help us identify the three firefighters in our mystery photo?
The Proctor High School Yearbooks are now available in our "Historical Texts" section. Any assistance in locating those yearbooks we are lacking would greatly appreciated.
Please contact the Society if you have any of these yearbooks. We will scan them and return them to you as soon as possible.
