Many helped with reunion

The grads of 1962 held their 50-year reunion on the weekend.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the committee for the 50-year reunion of  the Summerland Secondary School grad class of 1962, we would like to take this opportunity to thank The Beanery, SASS Boutique, Willowbrook Lane and the Bulk Food Emporium for their support of our weekend event.

Bell, Jacoe and Co were also a great help offering their facilities to reproduce our classmates bios.

The community should be aware that both the Yacht Club and the Legion in this town have excellent facilities for hosting these types of events.

The Kiwanis Club lived up their world renowned standard for their pancake brunch.

Audie Yastremski put on a first rate meal at our Saturday dine and dance.

Lastly, hats off to our fellow grads and friends who did the grunt work to get the various venues operational all of which made for a most enjoyable weekend for all.

After a tour of the high school, it is evident that the students of Summerland are well served by a staff and facility that provide a very modern approach to education.

Brian Adams
