Are you planning to be in Swift Current for the June 27th weekend for Swift Current's Centennial Celebration? If so and you were a student, teacher or administrative staff from the graduating classes of 1970 to 1980 at the Swift Current Comprehensive High School (SCCHS) plan to attend the 7080 SCCHS Reunion on the evening of June 27th at the Comp School cafeteria. Registration is required at the SCCHS 7080 website to take part in this special event.
“We are looking forward to reconnecting with classmates, teachers or coaches from the graduating classes of 1970 to 1980 from the Comp School during the Centennial Homecoming weekend,” says Cathy Cuthbert (nee Scott), chair of the organizing committee. “We thought it would be a great opportunity to tag onto Swift Current’s Centennial celebrations and the individuals returning to the city, and with those that live in the area, to organize a reunion of the first few years that the Comp School was open,” she said. The evening is being held at the Comp School cafeteria on Friday, June 27th from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Appetizers and a cash bar will be available to add to the evening.
“Pictures and memorabilia from those early years, and just being back at the Comp, will bring a ‘Blast from the Past’ providing for some great conversation, laughter and renewal of some old acquaintances,” said Connie Rittinger and Janice Newton-Brown both members of the committee.
“To cover the cost of the night, a small registration fee of $20 for each person attending is required. You can register by going to our web or Facebook page which is separate from registering for the Centennial Homecoming,” noted Janet Keene (nee Orr) another organizing member.
“Registrations are rolling in, especially from those outside of our city, including as far as away as Australia. While the deadline to register is May 28th, we do encourage our local residents to register as soon as possible to ensure our visiting guests can reunite with as many former classmates as possible and receive a warm welcome back to the city. We want this to be a great experience and celebration for all who attend."
