After 20 years, class gift to Londonderry High School is showing its age
Built as the Londonderry High School Class of 1994 class gift, this ticket booth has been sitting outside of Londonderry Lions Hall for an unknown number of years after the school installed a more permanent structure. Alumnus Robert Antonellis, who became aware of the situation during a visit home over the holidays, said he’d like to see the structure restored and is calling on the public for help.

Late last month, Londonderry High School graduate Robert Antonellis was in town visiting family when he happened to notice the booth was sitting in front of the Mammoth Road meeting house.
“No one seems to know exactly how the booth arrived at Lions Hall,” Antonellis said during a phone interview this week. “It’s great that it’s still being used, but that’s not what we built it for.”
“Now the booth needs some repairs, but neither the school nor the Lions have the money to put into it,” Antonellis said. “Without our help it’s only going to get worse over time.”
Ciccarello said that last he checked, the Lions had added some vinyl siding and a storm door to the building, which looks very different now than it did in its heyday.
“It definitely needs some repairs,” Ciccarello said. “But those boys truly built it to last.”
