River East Collegiate Alumni Planning 50th Reunion

The alumni of River East Collegiate have been hard at work planning a 50th reunion to take place next summer.

Organizers are currently looking for more ideas (and former students) to bring to the event, taking place June 24-26, 2011.

Al Smaluk, one of the school’s first principals, has been located in Ottawa. The 90-year-old is looking forward to reminiscing with former staff and students.

The three-day event will include an open house at the school, a dinner and dance at the Winnipeg Convention Centre and many introductions.

Anyone who attended the school in the 1960s can find more information at REC50.ca.
