The class of 1958 recently celebrated their 50th anniversary since graduating Grade 12 with a reunion party on Oct. 3 at the Ponoka Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. The class decided to plant a tree to serve as a marker of the anniversary.

The tree, a Shubert Chokecherry, now stands in front of the Ponoke Elementary School building.

The class was the first class to graduate from Grade 12 at Diamond Willow Middle School and had planted a tree in the past as well.

The class reunion saw approximately 80 per cent of the class’ graduates and their spouses at the 50th reunion and was very successful.
