Class of 54 Library Project
$1954 donated to Mepham Library
In May, Lance Blackshaw
presented a gift of $1954 from the Class of 1954 to Librarian
Shari Stack and Principal Eric Gomez.
Spearheaded by Bob "Vince"
Ferrigno in 2015, the Mepham High School Class of 1954 Memoriam
Library Fund was established "to support the library
and honor our fellow classmates and the many individuals in the
Mepham community who have so positively impacted our lives."
Since then, our class has continued to make annual donations
of $1954 or more. Last year (2020), our donation was used for
- Library Book Return
- Charging Station
- Smith System® Flexline Technology
- Books and miscellaneous items
Donations are being accepted by Bob "Vince"
Ferrigno at email@example.com. They are tax deductible!
