Major Milestone Reached!!
MILFORD HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI & INTERESTED OTHERS
We need your help. The old, fragile, yellowed Beaver County (Milford News) newspapers remain on wooden shelves at the City Office building, deteriorating daily. We have tried to save them in special archival boxes, but the papers need to be digitized to insure their survival. Through the State Library System, we were able to digitize newspaper years 1916 – 1946, but we need approximately $16,000 to continue years 1947 – 1989. Preserving Milford’s history is a worthy project. Please check out utahdigitalnewspapers, find & select the Milford link. After enjoying the journey, dig deep into your pockets and send a donation to:

X= # of separate donations
contributing alumni by decade 40-49 = 9…50-59=20…60-69=24 someone must have graduated after 69. non-alumni contributers =7.
We can do this!! WE ARE PRESENTLY @ 98.38 % OF OUR INITIAL GOAL 10/2015 Average contribution (excluding the reunion committee) is $227.25. Thank you all very much!
Will still appreciate donations to exceed the our initial goal, as we had to leave 1981–1989 in our library. We have received zero donations from classes in the 70s & 80s so far, we hope to hear from some of you, after all these were your MHS decades
