April in Millbury's History
President William Howard Taft attended Second
Congregational Church (now called the Federated
Church) with his aunt Delia Torrey on April 3, 1910.

This recently acquired photo (2016) of President Taft
leaving church with his Aunt Delia on that day was in
the church’s vestibule.

Notice the minister of the service, Rev. Robert
Dunbar, discreetly hanging back in the rear. His
granddaughters, Pam Roberts and Kathy Larkin from
Maine observed this when they visited the church,
and this copy was made.

The third annual Grace M. Laflash/Millbury Historical Society
scholarship was recently presented to Ashley Giorgio, an
eighth-grade student at Assumption School in Millbury.

The scholarship was established in honor of Grace M.
Laflash, a charter member of the Historical Society and a
former teacher at Assumption.  It is awarded annually to the
top history student at the school.

Ashley is the daughter of Paul & Diana Giorgio of Millbury,
and she will be attending Marianapolis Preparatory School in
the fall.
