Thayer Scoreboard Restored

Updated 1/27/10 12:25 PM - The scheduled presentation has been canceled for today. When the new date/time has been finalized, it will be posted here.

A letter from Glenn Jones:

The Davis Thayer School has had an antique scoreboard hanging in the corner of the gym unused for over 30 years. It dates back some 50 years or more. I spoke with a gentleman who claims it worked when he went to the DT 50 yrs ago. It was slated to be thrown away, but I took it upon my self to remove the old scoreboard and refurbish it. With some great help and contributions, I have been able to restore it back to it original grandeur.

I will be presenting it back to the Davis Thayer School on Wednesday January 27th @ 2pm.

All are welcome to come and see history come back to life.
Thanks Glenn! Wish I could be there myself.
