BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF –
The Grey Highlands Secondary School (GHSS) 50th reunion weekend was a smash success as thousands of former students, faculty and staff descended on Flesherton this past weekend.
The Flesherton and District Farmers' Market served free birthday cake in honour of the weekend and displayed a giant birthday card signed by vendors and customers.
A large crowd gathered to catch-up at the Flesherton Arena prior to the dance on Saturday.
Friday events were highlighted by the staff reunion dinner at the Markdale Golf and Curling Club and 50 Years of Talent Show at GHSS. Sports took over Saturday's schedule with best ball golf tournament and beach volleyball tournament.
Sadly, many GHSS alumni have passed but were honoured by friends and family in the arena Saturday night.
Black Water Draw featuring alumnus Fred Hale played to a full house at the Flesherton Arena on Saturday evening. The Rotary Club of Markdale pancake breakfast and praise service capped off a memorable three days.

West Grey mayor and alumnus from the graduating class of 1977, Kevin Eccles was in attendance.
Harvey Hutchinson, who graduated from GHSS in the year that construction on the school was completed is with Jack Murphy, class of '74, who came to the reunion all the way from Calgary.

Hats off to the very tired GHSS 50th Reunion volunteer committee for pulling everything off without a hitch. It was easy to tell that everyone had a great time. Here's to the next 50 years!

We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization.
