Recently, the Middleborough Historical Association visited the 5th grade at the Burkland School to tell about Middleborough’s past. While at the school some of Middleborough’s more noted residents were highlighted. Among them were Peter Oliver, Tom and Lavinia Thumb and the Peirce family. Presenting the program were Sheri Reimels, Judy Donahue, Gladys Beals and Doug Vantran. A question and answer session the students viewed the items that were brought and were very surprised at the size of the Thumb items (Gloves, shoes, cane).
The M.H.A would like to thank the teachers and the administration at the School for allowing us to be there. Doug Vantran told the students of all the other features of the museum and urged them to visit. The museum is opened on Wed. and Sat. 1-4 from now thru Oct.
