Oldtimers’ reunion coming up

Class of ‘69 recognized

Rimbey and District Oldtimers Association’s 64th annual reunion is back again and, as in the past, the event promises to be a good time for everyone.

The reunion is to be held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre beginning at noon on June 15. A concession lunch is available from noon until 2 p.m.

Supper will be held at 5 p.m. and the Rimbey Lions Club will host a bar from 2 to 8 p.m.

President Murray Ormberg stresses that everyone is welcome to attend and the term ‘oldtimer’ could refer to anyone who has ties to Rimbey regardless of age.

“Everyone from near and far, young and old, new and lifetime residents are welcome,” he said.

This year the class of 1969 will be honoured.

Ormberg said this includes anyone who attended the school who would have been eligible to graduate in 1969.

The descendents of the J. P. and Emma Becker family will be recognized.

A pancake breakfast will be held on Sunday from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at Pas Ka Poo Park from 8:30 to 11 a.m.
