The NVSS reunion took over the streets of Vanderhoof on July 21 as the 1970-1975 graduating classes participated in the Tractor Parade with their own own float, which exuded school spirit.

The NVSS 2012 reunion marched down Burrand Street in celebration of time passed and friendships rekindled.

The weekend events ended at the Rainbow Christian School with a dinner and a dance.

Speeches were made by students and teachers while entertainment by Sound Addiction, a group from Prince George, filled the gymnasium welcoming the attendees to the dance floor to commemorate and honour their NVSS successes some 40 years ago.

Mayor Thiessen stood before his class of 1975 and spoke highly of his high school career and those he shared it with.

 

Laughs were shared and friendships were reunited.
