Most of them met 50 years ago in Grade 1, and on June 21, former students from McLeod Road Elementary School, most of whom attended the school between 1964 and 1970, got together for their 50-year reunion.

Anyone that attended McLeod Road during those years who wants to join in future gatherings can email Arlene Laing at famlaing@shaw.ca
