On Aug 1 to 3 graduates from the Brick School will come together to celebrate the past and see how the town has since changed. The class of 1948, the first graduating class, had 26 students. Most of them are now in their 70s or 80s will be descending on the school.

The event has 102 confirmed people and one of the organizers Verna Raycroft is looking forward to the event and is very excited.

“It will be great seeing people trying to recognize faces from 50 to 60 years ago,” said Raycraft. “The highlight is that we’re still here traveling and our health permits us to get together after all these years.”

The reunion will include a tour of the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury, time at the Ponoka Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, a tour of the Brick School, golfing at Wolf Creek Golf Course and other events around town.

For more information on the reunion from Aug 1 to 3 contact Verna Raycroft 403-783-5396.
