Registrations open for reunion
October 24, 2016 8:18 am
Registrations are now being taken for the 2017 Homecoming and Reunion in Moosomin.
The reunion and homecoming is being planned to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
The reunion is set for July 6-9, 2017 in Moosomin.
Registration will begin on the Thursday evening with an icebreaker social at the new PotashCorp Sportsplex. Friday evening will feature the first night of rodeo and a dance with a DJ at the Conexus MCC Centre. Saturday will be the annual Chamber of Commerce parade, with a theme of Moosomin Through the Years. Individual classes will be encouraged to enter floats.
After the parade and the ball drop, the international community will host a lunch and entertainment from their home countries. The first multicultural event was held last summer during the rodeo weekend, and proved to be a huge hit, with participation from the Filipino, Honduran, South African, Korean, and East Indian communities.
Following that, a program will be held at McNaughton High School featuring a couple of alumni as guest speakers.
Saturday will include more rodeo events, rodeo idol, the Bucking Bull Futurity, and a Saturday night dance featuring the Back 40 Drifters.
Reunion organizers have been in discussions with the Moosomin Ministerial Association about holding a joint church service on the Sunday morning of the reunion weekend.
A registration form is available on page 14 of this issue of the World-Spectator, and at www.world-spectator.com/canada-150
