Gilford Butler School Futures Committee was a group of seven volunteers appointed by the Select Board of South Thomaston. The committee met regularly from July 19, 2018 until July of 2019. Their mission was to openly discuss options for the future of the school property and to identify and present the financial cost, conceptual community benefits, and possible fundraising options for each of these options to the Select Board and the Residents of South Thomaston. They gathered resident surveys, building condition reports, exploring other area projects, gathering estimates and funding options, and had 2 public input meetings. Their members were: Chair: John Spear, Vice-Chair: Jeffrey Northgraves, Sandy Weisman, Pennie Alley, Ervin Curtis, Sandy Retzlaff, and Merle Rockwell. Past members are Chief Bryan Calderwood and Eileen Skarka. The Town greatly appreciated the hard work by these folks.
