Iroquois Falls Secondary School has been around for 103 years, but it’s celebrating its 100th anniversary with a reunion this Canada Day Weekend.
Committee member Shari Denault says the pandemic delayed the reunion. It begins with an open house on Friday, June 30th and Saturday, July 1st.
“There will be tours of the school that you can take,” Denault explains, “there’ll be a conversation café so people can gather, meet up with old friends; we will have local artisans on display as well.”
Other activities planned involve golf, a classic car show and a gala and dance on Saturday night.
Denault mentions the logo contest, featuring the latest school mascot, a red, white and black tiger. It raised some controversy, from alumni who, Denault says, aren’t familiar with that mascot.
“So we are able to put the crest up, which is the only logo that has lasted through the whole 100 years of the school.”
More details on the reunion and what’s planned for it are in the audio link below. And there’s an unconfirmed rumour that the 1973 incarnation of Conrad Birdie from “Bye Bye Birdie” will make a guest appearance.
