Ecole Davis Road celebrates 50 years Wednesday

Ecole Davis Road extends an invitation to the public to join students, staff and parents at its 50th birthday party Wednesday, June 5.

École Davis Road is celebrating 50 years strong in 2013, and the school wants the whole community to come to the party.

École Davis Road is celebrating its 50th anniversary with an Old-Time Family Picnic Party and BBQ Extraordinaire this Wednesday (June 5) from 2:30-6:30 p.m. at the school grounds.

“Come join us in this community-wide celebration of 50 fabulous years of quality education, dedication and community service,” states a press release. “École Davis Road is more than just a school, and this is more than just an anniversary party! With a nod to our past and with open arms to the present, we encourage the entire Ladysmith community to laugh and lounge with us at our Old-Time Family Picnic and BBQ Extraordinaire!”

There will be live entertainment, a dunk tank, fire truck tours, old-time children’s games, raffles and prize draws, and much more.

While at the picnic, alumni can take a stroll down memory lane by visiting the school’s photographic wall of history.

There will be plenty of food, including complimentary hot dogs, fruit salad and popcorn for children. Salad, hot dogs and popcorn will be available for adults by donation, and there will also be catered Chinese food or Indian pakoras for $3. Those with a sweet tooth can try celebratory cake, or top their own customized waffle sundaes for $3. Proceeds from food purchases will go back to École Davis Road to help enrich students’ programs.
