Ladysmith Reunion almost here

Plenty of room left for event

  • Aug. 29, 2011 10:00 a.m.

The Great Ladysmith Reunion is just around the corner.

 

Russ Chambers said they are trying to get people together who lived and went to school in Ladysmith during the 30s, 40s, and 50s on September 17 at 2 p.m. at the Aggie.

 

Even a few who went to school in the 60s are signing up.

 

“I think we’ll have between 125 and 150 people there,” said Chambers.

 

There is still lots of space for people to take part. The cost is $25 which includes a meal and entertainment.

 

Chambers said they are getting a lot of interest and people are travelling from far and wide to come back and remember their time along the 49th Parallel.

 

The longest travelling person signed up so far is Ray Dunlop, coming all the way from Santiago, Chile.

 

Chambers own brother is also coming from Whitehorse.

 

Another one of the registered guests is a woman who graduated high school in 1934.

“She’s actually in Ladysmith now.”

 

Chambers said they are also in need of a keyboard for the evening’s entertainment.

 

Anybody who may have one to loan can email ladysmithreunion@gmail.com.

 

“We are hoping to have a bit of a jam session after the dinner.”

 

The Western-themed meal will be catered by the Phoenix Restaurant.
