Going back.

School and graduation reunions can be wonderful events. They allow former school mates from near and far, many who have not seen each other for years of event decades to reconnect and once again enjoy current and past friendships.

There is going to be a big one held in Dawson Creek on June 9/10, 2023.

A group of former students who attended South Peace Senior High School between the years of 1970 to 1975 were brought together by Kathie Braden Laforge to plan this major undertaking.

For the last six months the organizing committee has been meeting online and working on many things to make this reunion a reality.

The biggest and most challenging job has been tracking down former students to inform them that this reunion planning is in process. This group has created an  Facebook group, SPSS High School Reunion 1970-75. Between this site and countless contacts that have been made the response has been terrific. Almost 400 individuals have already indicated their interest or commitment to attend.

In addition the committee has secured the very popular local band Pilot, that played together "back in the day" to provide entertainment. The curling rink will be the venue for the opening registration and Wine and Cheese on Friday evening and also the banquet, social and dance on Saturday.

By early January, 2023, the committee will be forwarding the event information, registration and payment form to everyone for whom they have been able to find contact information. If you happen to know anyone who has been missed -  contact Kathie Braden Laforge at if they are interested in attending.

Other members of the committee include Cindy Delainey Anderson, Peggy Carberry Benoit, Joe Judge, Otto Krauskopf, Diana Judge Mitchell, Cindy Johnston Olsen, Trina Petrick Sims, and Penny Trail.

Organizers expect the weekend to be a huge one in the community  - and know people and businesses of DC will welcome all former students back with open arms.
