Edge Hill isn’t the only educational establishment in Ormskirk celebrating an anniversary this year – Pontville School on Black Moss Lane is 100 years old in 2010 – happy birthday!
On day one of this blog I posted Sarah Hale’s invitation to the Twenty-Fifth anniversary of the College and today we get to see a glimpse of the event itself with the photo of those who attended taken at 4pm, July 2nd, 1910.
100 years ago and Edge Hill was celebrating it’s twenty fifth anniversary:
May 18th, 1910.
Memorandum from the Principal.
My Dear Students,
You will be glad to know that the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the College will be kept on July 2nd next.
Note the date, for the fourth Saturday in June – the date of our usual Annual Gathering – is found to be inconvenient. Please let me know by filling up and posting the enclosed card at once whether or not you will be able to keep Festival with us.
Details of Public Luncheon, Entertainments, &c, will be sent to you later on receipt of your acceptance.
Sarah J. Hale.
Something tells me this won’t be the last we hear from Sarah Hale!
