2011: MERCERVILLE SCHOOL CENTENNIAL
Even though Sandtown's (Mercerville's) "School No. 27" dates back to the 19th century when the Mercerville School House was located on Quaker Bridge Road, the year 2011 marks the centennial celebration of that legendary old Hamilton Township school on Regina Avenue in Sandtown....uh, make that Mercerville. On Saturday, September 24th from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M., the school yard at Mercerville School will be filled with teachers, alumni, local area residents, and perhaps some local dignitaries as the school celebrates this centennial milestone. I will be there with some of the local history that reposes in the Hamilton Township Public Library's Local History Collection. I hope to see you there!
