The Watertown Historical Society scanned and digitized yearbooks for Watertown High going back to 1917. Each yearbook contained a theme. Here are a few from the earliest yearbooks:
1917: Build for character and not for fame
1919: Truth, Honor and Knowledge
1924: “Out of School Life, Into Life’s School”
1926: “Give the Best to the World, in Return for Success.”
And from the more recent:
2001: ‘Don’t tell me the sky is the limit. There are footprints on the moon.”
2004: Achieve your potential
2009: Focus on the good, the bad, what we have learned, and what we have yet to learn.
The expression, “the more things change, the more they stay the same,” was very evident when examining these yearbooks which spanned generations. There were always the smart kids, the popular kids, the athletes, the musicians, and the civic-minded. The school somehow made room for everyone, and each student contributed from their strengths to create a unified student body.
These include: fair pricing, friendly, professional service, state of the art equipment and 24-hour availability.
The oldest lock discovered by archaeologists was large and wooden but worked surprisingly similarly to the locks we use today. Some say that one of the first jobs of locksmiths was to protect the tombs of Egyptian kings inside the pyramids.
So things have both changed and stayed the same. While Sure Lock & Key changes with the times, keeping up with innovations and advancements in home, auto and commercial security, there are certain things about their service that will never change, no matter how much time goes by. They will always be committed to fair pricing. They will always provide friendly, professional service. They will always invest in the most up to date, state of the art equipment. They will always update their skills to the highest level of expertise available. They will always be available around the clock to rescue you in any emergency.
These are principles you can count on, because no matter how much technology advances, some things — the most important things — will always stay the same.
