Petersburg – The Peabody High School Class of 1957 made a contribution of $1,050 to support the construction of the new 56,000 sf. Petersburg Library. Joan Overton class coordinator said “This new facility will be an educational boost for the kids in Petersburg and valuable to the City too.” Class members were in town over the Labor Day weekend attending the Peabody High School National Alumni Association Tenth Anniversary. “I think it is great and hope it helps very much” said classmate Nan Aycox.
