Tuesday, November 19, 2013
John and Pat Ellis of Mississippi are pictured donating Manila School annuals to the Manila Public Library. Accepting the donation is Mary Alice Ketchum, branch librarian.

John and Pat Ellis donated 15 Manila Lion Echo yearbooks, ranging from 1952 until 1990, to the Manila Public Library.

Branch librarian Mary Alice Ketchum expressed her appreciation for the donation. The yearbooks are in very good condition. The 1952 yearbook is the second one published by the Manila High School annual staff.

The books belonged Mrs. Ellis' mother, the late Elvina Bollinger. She was a long time resident of Manila and very active in the community.

Ketchum said the school annuals will be at the Manila Public Library for the public to view. She said the library is a good place for anyone wishing to donate old school annuals.
