ALIDA - The Grade 9 class from 1969 of Alida School held a reunion at the Alida Rink on July 8.  

Twelve former students attended the reunion along with other friends, family members, former teachers and community members. 

The day started at the Alida Rink with introductions as some hadn’t seen each other for 50-plus years. A potluck supper followed, and then they resumed visiting, storytelling and reminiscing.  

Attending were: Wenda Smith/Wilmot and her husband Jack of Leduc, Alta.; Jane Elaschuk/Lemieux and her husband Bob of High River, Alta; Karen Hess/Dangstorp of Redvers; Denise Gervais/Young and her husband Ken of Alameda; Linda Germain/Potapinski and her husband Dale of Alida; Linda Berkes/Istace and her husband Edward of Pilot Butte; Raymond Fenrick of Regina and Betty (Burnett) and her husband Dennis of Glen Ewen.  

Special guests were Lil Patton, a former teacher, and her husband Leonard of Alida; Faye Walker, wife of former teacher/principal, the late Merv Walker of Alida; Ed Renaulds of Regina; Edel Cowan; Eleanor Harrison, Andy Girard, Prudent Mailhiot and Mark Beriault (all of Alida); and Bill and Sharon Hubbard of Storthoaks.  

Sincere appreciation goes to the Alida Recreation Board for hosting us at the Alida Rink and to Shelly Cowan for arranging and being a great bartender.
