CLASS REUNIONS

There are many graduating classes that are celebrating significant milestones. Click here for more information about the time and location of each reunion.

4:00 PM

ALUMNI CHORUS PRACTICE

For many GL students, being in the chorus is synonymous with their Great Lakes experience. We invite anyone attending the weekend (including those who did not attend GL) to practice some familiar songs to be presented during the banquet. 

If you are interested in joining the Alumni Chorus, please email Martin Cann (martin.cann@cogeco.ca).

6:00 PM

HOMECOMING BANQUET

The Homecoming Banquet is the centerpiece of the Alumni Weekend. This formal dinner provides an opportunity for classmates to not only share a meal together, but also to reminisce about their time at Great Lakes. Entertainment and presentations throughout the evening will highlight the many classes who are celebrating milestone years; just as the school is celebrating the milestone of 70 years!
 

This year we will be honouring John Brocklebank - our Alumnus of the Year. John is from the graduating class of 1970 and has remained connected to the school in multiple, meaningful ways.

 

Join us for a Punch Reception at 5:30 p.m.

 

 Tickets must be purchased to attend the banquet. 

$40 until October 13. $50 after.

(There is no charge for the meal, but a free-will gift is appreciated.)

ALUMNI CHURCH SERVICE

We can't think of a better way to end a fantastic weekend than by coming together to praise the God who has blessed our school in the 'heart of the Niagara Peninsula' for over 70 years!

Join us for as much of the weekend as your schedule will allow. We can't wait to see you!
