The first graduation exercises to be held in the new South Marysburgh Central School, Milford, took place at the school in 1961, following a dinner at the Town Hall. The graduates are shown above in this Hodgson Studio photo. Front, from left: Carmen Brown, Roy Rorabeck, Lois Striker, Barbara Jenkins, Daphne Grimmon, Mary Ackerman, Barry Jones. Second row: School principal William Pettingill, Dayton Johnson, Charles Storms, Wayne Dainard, Chris Salt, Dennis Dulmage, Earl Rorabeck. Third row: Melvin Murphy, Dennis Brooks, James Rorabeck, Garry Minaker, Ted Bond, David Whattam and Don Hudson.

Milford’s Fair Saturday, Sept. 18, will highlight “School Days” this year in tribute to South Marysburgh Public School’s closing in June.
“We are asking anyone who has attended or worked at South Marysburgh School to join us and walk in the parade,” says Susan Creasy on the South Marysburgh School Reunion Facebook page. “It’s a great opportunity to meet up with old… classmates, teachers and colleagues and get reacquainted. The organizers are hoping to have every year represented by former students and staff. Please be at the school by 10:15 a.m. so we can organize graduates and former staff into their respective years and register everyone for a name tag. If you are unable to make it for the parade please join us at the Fair.”

South Marysburgh and Athol elementary schools teamed up to win the County Senior Soccer Championships in 1984.

  1. LOVED THE FIRST GRADUATION CLASS OF 1961…..WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO C ALL OF THE GRADUATING CLASSES SO A COPY COULD BE SAVED!!!!!IM AM SURE A LOT OF PAST STUDENTS WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THEIR CLASS PICTURE!!!!!!!!

  2. Sam Lanfranco says:

    On behalf of the volunteers and supports of the Milford Village Fair I would like to express our appreciation to Countylive for its coverage of our 2010 parade and Milford Fair. The 2010 theme “School Days” was bitter sweet in that it brought back scores of former South Marysburgh school attendees but also marks the final year in which the school will be open.

    South Marysburgh students will be well served at the Athol Central Public School in nearby Cherry Valley. We hope that Countylive keeps a watchful eye on the fate of the South Marysburgh school property. Given the needs of the County it would be a shame if the property languished unused for a long period of time.

    Sam Lanfranco,
    President, Milford Fair Board
