The notices went out early March of 2017, the numbers of the Grads and guests, including former Teachers and Alumni, surpassed 180 people. We had Lorrie Allen (Collins), with her Husband Fred, all the way from New Zealand, Bill Hitchcox, and his wife Brenda, from North Carolina, Bill Booth, from Halifax Nova Scotia, Donna Thompson, from I believe Manitoba, Leif Lassen From Yellowknife, Many from Alberta, the interior and mainland of B.C, and of course numerous grads from up Island and Victoria area.
