Class of 1977 - The planning committee for the Class of 1977 has been meeting regularly for several months to organize their 40-year reunion.  Friday night, July 14, 2017 will be for grads-only (also open to people who would have graduated with them) at O'Leary's Pub from 7PM onward.  This will be followed by a grad and spouse / friend dance in the Simonds cafeteria on Saturday, July 15th from 8PM until midnight.  Music for the dance will be supplied by DJ Chris (Frick) Wetmore of Alpha One Studios and the bar will be taken care of by the Simonds High Alumni Committee & friends.   If you graduated in 1977, please send your name and email information to simonds1977grad@gmail.com and join their face book group Simonds High School Class of 1977.   Sue Silliker (the “class detective”) posted an extensive list of grads on the Simonds High School Alumni face book page; most members of their class of over 350 grads have been located!!  Cost for the reunion is $30 per person and payment may be made by cheque or by e-transfer to simonds1977grad@gmail.com.  The registration form for the reunion is available on the class face book page.  At least 130 people have already registered for this event!  It certainly will be a grand celebration!  

Class of 1987 - A 30-year reunion for this class is tentatively planned for the fall of 2017.  Once more information is available, it will be posted on our alumni face book page and their class page: Simonds High School Class of 1987
 
Class of 1992 - Due to insufficient numbers, the 25-yr Class of 1992 “Meet & Greet” scheduled for July 8, 2017 at O’Malley’s Pub is cancelled.  A huge 30-year reunion will be planned for 2022!  Please follow their class face book page Simonds High School – Class of 1992 for updates.

Also, the Class of 1968 is in the early stages of preparation for their 50th High School Reunion. A tentative date of June 16, 2018 has been set, so grads can “Save the Date”. A venue has not yet been determined. Anyone interested in serving on the organizing committee please contact Beth (Thomas) Roy at bethroyiam@gmail.com.  A meeting will be held in the fall. Please spread the word to all  fellow graduates. Stay tuned for further details.

If any other classes are planning reunions, could they please send details and dates to Judy Chapman at chapmanb@nbnet.nb.ca or Tammy Kilpatrick at kilpatrick.tammy@sourceatlantic.ca​ , or post or send us a message on our alumni face book page.  It is always good to get information out early so grads can book their vacations and make plans to attend.

    

Yearbooks for Alumni 

Looking for a great gift for a friend or family member for a birthday or early Christmas gift? The Simonds Alumni committee has new yearbooks to sell. We have books from almost a variety of years (only a few years sold out).  The yearbooks are being sold for $35 (no tax) each! So, if you did not get or misplaced your own yearbooks, or wish to surprise someone with a great gift of memories, please contact Judy Chapman at chapmanb@nbnet.nb.ca​ or any other member of the alumni committee.


Simonds Memorial Grove

Over several years Simonds has planted trees in memory of several teachers and students who have passed away. Recently, the Simonds Alumni decided to partner with the school Environmental Club and a couple of local businesses to plan some improvements to the school grounds. This initiative will take place over a couple of years. As part of this plan, we are hoping to have some more trees donated and planted in our memorial grove. We are seeking individuals or grad-class years who wish to donate a tree in memory of one or more individuals. We invite classes who are planning reunions for this or upcoming years to please consider placing a memorial tree in memory of several deceased members of your class. What a beautiful way in which to remember a classmate / friend / family member! The approximate cost of a tree is $150. Other plans to improve the school grounds include an improved "landscaped" area with flowers and benches in front of C building, improvements to current benches, increased tree wind-block around the sports field & more. Please message or email (chapmanb@nbnet.nb.ca) me or any other member of the Simonds alumni committee if you or your class / group would like to donate a memorial tree or if you would like to a part of this worthwhile initiative to give back to your school. Thank you for your assistance with this worthwhile project.​
