Fillmore Central School Board: District donates old school photos to Harmony Historical Society


Fri, Aug 31st, 2007
Posted in Education

HARMONY - At their regular meeting, Aug. 28, Fillmore Central School Board members decided to donate the class pictures of students from Harmony High School to the Harmony Historical Society, at the request of Paula Michel.

Michel approached the board with the request, stating that the Historical Society is anxious to preserve the pictures. The pictures were hanging on the walls in the school for many years, and were removed when asbestos removal began a couple of years ago. Since then they have been moved around, and some of the frames and glass have been damaged.

According to Michel, there is a room at the Visitor's Center where the pictures can be displayed. The Historical Society will be raising funds for the purchase of a display case that will hold all of the photos. The display case will cost anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000. It is unknown just how many pictures there are or how far back they go.

Michel also mentioned that people coming to Harmony for class reunions have asked about seeing the pictures. "It's a part of Harmony's history," she said. She also added that they could raise some of the money needed for the case by making a DVD of the pictures and selling the DVD.

Board member Deb Ristau made the request that an agreement with the Harmony Historical Society would include the stipulation that if sometime in the future they no longer have room for them or want them, that the pictures be given back to the school or some other place where they can remain together, and not separated.

Principals' Report

High School Principal Heath Olstad mentioned in his report that head football coach Chris Mensink has organized a fund raiser with the football team to help the victims of the flood in the Rushford area. The team will be working with Kingsley Mercantile in Harmony, who will buy needed supplies at cost for the clean-up efforts. The Fillmore Central Student Council will also be raising money. The money raised will be presented at the Homecoming game against Rushford in September. Olstad complimented Mensink and the student council on their genuine efforts to help out.
