One of B.C.’s oldest high schools – King George Secondary School in Vancouver  – is marking its 100th anniversary with an activity-filled alumni weekend this fall.

A huge celebration of the school’s past, present and future is planned for the weekend of Oct. 3 and 4. All former students and staff are welcome to attend.

The organizing committee is reaching out to all corners of the province to spread word of the event.

There will be a nostalgia room with pictures and mementoes from early years of the school, “Era” rooms to reawaken old memories, a social hall for dancing to the old tunes and an opportunity to sing and jam in the music room. Attendees will be invited to pose for candid street shots, and tour the old West End. There’s also a pancake breakfast, Friday and Saturday evening buffets, and dancing.

For information or to register, email KingGeorge100th@gmail.com, or call the school at 604-713-9888  or 604-681-9086. There’s also a Facebook page (Facebook.com/KingGeorge100th).
