The class of 1887
Class of 1900
The class of '87, the very first class to graduate from the High school in the Town of Bourne held its exercises in the M. E. Church on Thursday evening, June 30th before an appreciative audience, the building itself being tastefully decorated with the ever dear old flag and a wreath of flowers.

Graduating Class: Harry L. Butler Clarence E. Eldridge, Sadie F. Gibbs, Emma F. Pierce, Fred K. Swift, Glenn S. Bullen, Principal; Anna M. Starbuck, Assistant.
There are 34 scholars at present time. Each and every pupil and the orchestra performed their parts excellently well. We cannot place incompleteness in our verdict. Painstaking teachers (as Principal, Mr. Bullen is particularly deserving) and all connected gave, we think, a glad surprise to those assembled. Yet when we contrast the village and town advantages of the present time with those of 30 and 40 years ago, we feel that these and future " pupils should look well to their laurels, for, notwithstanding the lack in those days, men and women, scholars of that period, show now lives of advancement and progress, full and rounded.
From indications on graduation night it does appear that the aim of the class and school is, and will be, high. How can they fail to do so?
