Historical Society Digitizes Yearbooks:  Looking for Missing Volumes
Laurel, MD… Are you looking for high school or elementary school friends?  Many of the yearbooks from Laurel High, Laurel Junior High, Pallotti and other local schools can now be viewed both in hard cover and digitally at the Laurel  Museum, 817 Main Street, Laurel, MD.  Did you attend Laurel High or other local schools in the 1930’s or after 1994? The Laurel Historical Society would like to borrow your yearbook.

Digitization of the Society’s yearbooks was made possible through the Yearbook Project of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections at no cost to the Society. The books were scanned in color and will shortly be available on the historical society’s research computer in the Brennan library in the near future. The Yearbook Project is willing to digitize additional books, and the LHS is asking the community for help in filling in the gaps in its collection. If owners do not wish to donate their copy to the museum collection, yearbooks can be loaned to the Society and then returned in the same condition after they are digitized.  Here is a list of the missing volumes:
Laurel High School:  Any before 1927 except 1924; 1928;1929; 1931 to 1943; 1949; 1971;1979;1982;1984;1989 and 1994 to present day.
Laurel Junior High:  Any before 1966; 1968; 1981.
Eisenhower Middle School:  1983 to present day.
Martin Luther King:  1991 to present day.
Laurel Elementary School: Any except 1964.
Pallotti High School:  Any before 1983; 1990 to present day.
St. Mary’s: Any year
St. Mildred’s Academy:  Any except 1940 & 1949.

"We've found the yearbooks on display to be one of the most popular parts of our current exhibit 'Lost and Found Laurel' stated LHS Executive Director Lindsey Baker. "Visitors love to spend time looking through them."

To set up an appointment to research current yearbooks or to donate or loan a yearbook email:  director@laurelhistoricalsociety.org or call 301-725-7975.

Please join the Woman’s Club of Laurel at the Tampico Grill on October 23 to support the “Literacy for Little Ones” project. This project is designed to encourage a love of books at an early age.  Our project features the donation of a storybook to children ages 3 through Kindergarten in Laurel school programs.  A suggestion card for the family is included with ideas on ways to encourage a cozy reading time and foster pre-literacy skills at home.  Last year, this fundraiser enabled us provide more than 40 hardcover books to young children.

This year, the Tampico Grill will donate 35% of all sales (including carryout) between the hours of 11:00am and 9:30pm to the Woman’s Club, who in turn will use the money to support Literacy for Little Ones.  Please remember to mention this fundraiser to your server and put your receipt in the fundraiser bucket so the WCL will get credit for the sale.
