In celebration of its upcoming 60th anniversary, the Rockland High School Class of 1950 donated $1,200 to the Alumni Heritage Room located at the former high school building, now named the Lincoln Street Center.

The room contains memorabilia of all the graduating classes of Rockland High School, Rockland District Junior High School and Rockland District Middle School.

The donation was given to Ben Perry, director and curator of the Alumni Heritage Room. Perry said the money would be used to construct a new display case and to paint and do insulation work in the room, which is an actual classroom at the former high school.

The class of 1950 decided to empty its treasury to assist Perry in maintaining and continuing to collect memorabilia to keep alive the history and accomplishments of those who have graduated from the school. The class also made the donation in memory of the 33 classmates who have died from the original class of 103 students.

Alumni of the historic building are encouraged to donate any school related memorabilia to the Alumni Heritage Room for display such as yearbooks, photos, sports items, trophies, school letters, school sweaters and school uniforms.

People who want the items to be picked up can call 354-0582 or donors can drop off items at 24 Lincoln St. in Rockland on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Any class or individual who wishes to donate money to the center or the Alumni Heritage Room can do so by making checks payable to the Lincoln Street Center for Arts and Education.
