To the editor;
King George High School in Vancouver is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
The challenge for the organizers is to connect with as many KG alumni as possible.
Some of our younger alumni will be using the web, including Facebook, to try to make those contacts but we know that many of our older alumni are still addicted to the printed word.
King George High School is 100 years old! One of the oldest high schools in the province, ‘KG’ will be celebrating its centenary October 3 and 4 this year with a number of very special events.
As well as a ‘Nostalgia’ room with pictures and mementoes from the very early years of the school, there will also be ‘Era’ rooms to awaken old memories.
A ‘social hall’ reincarnation for dancing to the old tunes, an opportunity to sing some of the old tunes and ‘jam’ together in the music room are also planned. Candid street shots a la Foncie’s Fotos.
Tours of the old West End Saturday morning for alums and the public led by current students. Friday and Saturday evening buffets and dancing. All this and more, including a pancake breakfast on Saturday morning.
If you went to King George, plan now to come to the 100th celebration. A once in a lifetime opportunity, there are even discounts for early registration!
