Marshfield: Turning out the lights at the old high school

It’s a final farewell tonight to the old Marshfield High School, which has been open for more than 40 years.

With the new high school set to open its doors this fall, the town will hold a “Turning Out the Lights” ceremony from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight, giving residents and former students one more chance to walk the halls of the old school.

There will also be a silent auction of memorabilia in the gym. Among the items for sale, according to school officials, are old athletic banners, trophies and plaques, as well as photographs and books.

At 8:15 p.m., weather permitting, there will be a more formal brief, final ceremony outside the building.

Tomorrow, the moving vans will roll in to empty out the old building.
