Comments: This is the first opportunity I have had to do some exploring on site....thanks Doug for the work in putting it together, and to Larry Preddy for all his work on the windup reunion....it will NEVER be forgotten....my most vivid laughable memory was everyone walking up to each, extending a hand and looking desperately for the infamous "TAG" that hung around the neck but actually lanquished in the belly area....no one wanted to miss anyone....and we had all changed so it was the only way to make sure we had the right connection. Sorry to have missed this year's gathering hopefully we do it again in 3/4 years.....as we get older I think it's more & more important to keep up the connection. My mom's class, one of the earlier graduating classes of ECI are still extremely close and make these functions an excuse to personally visit together not to mention the cards and phonecalls (and now e-mails) they share. Thanks again for "holding the fort" in our hearts and minds forever.

It will not be a school reunion, but possibly a homecoming? Time will tell. We are in the middle of trying to get the Bienfait School and Homecoming reunion for July 1, 2005 rolling. Like pulling teeth. lots of folks want to go, but no one to run it. same story in estevan. Keep in touch!

Comments: I'm not sure if this is a rumour but if it's not...I think it is sad that our community is going to lose part of our heritage when they demolish the EJH (or ECI). I would hope that someone out there would bring this situation to the heritage society in hopes of saving it.

I sent one just after the reunion to you, but this is better. If anyone else has a certain person they are interested in from this old photo please let me know, as I can zoom in anywhere on it. Hope everyone has a great summer.

Some pictures from the class of 64 mini-reunion in 2001 at Waterton Lakes that Carol Vinge Obyrne mentioned a couple of messages away, can be seen at:
http://www.lylo.com/waterton
We had a great time last summer and are raring to do it again (can't wait for 2005 back in Estevan) We had 9 alumni last year, hoping for that or better this.
Our 2002 reunion will be in Pender Harbour BC (on the Sunshine Coast--Sechelt Peninsula) beginning July 20 for 3 days. There's lotsa great places to stay around there and it is beautiful country, so why
not join us? You can find an email link from my website so let me know

Comments: Reunion 2000 was indescribably brilliant and it really warmed the 'home' fires, since I had not been in Estevan for a long time. Some of us (class of 64) are still bantering thru email and had a wonderful time at Waterton last summer - and we are planning a repeat this summer at Pender. You know some of them - Lyle Olsen, Tina and Ron Just, Mel and Bert and crew. I hadn't seen these great old friends in decades...and am so glad to know them again - even better this time around. Your web site is superb - thank you for doing this and for all the memorable images.

             Comments:
                        Here it is, almost three months after the reunion, and I still can't believe that
                        it really happened. What a great week-end! It was great to see so many
                        there, not only classmates but also former teachers and other community
                        members. The entire event was wonderfully organized and seemed to go off
                        without a hitch, although there probably were a few minor ones. I'm hoping
                        that there will be another one in a few years. Until returning to Estevan after
                        so many years, I never realized how much the school and the community have
                        meant to me over the years. Although I haven't lived in Estevan since I left in
                        '66, it still feels like home. I felt like a teen-ager again while I was there.
                        Thanks again to the committee for all your work and to all those who
                        attended and who made it such a success. Hope to see some of you again,
                        and to keep in touch with others.

 Comments: Only real ongoing challenge for the Estevan based Alumni... Some one MUST take on the task of finding out
 what happened to the paintings the grad classes left to the school. Most of the painters have done well since then, some very
 well! More importantly, they are our legacy, our point-in-time memorial to OUR school. They don't deserve to be left in a
 storage shed like the trophies!!! Please, Larry and team, someone take this on for our future Reunions??!! Mind you, how in
 Hell do you make the fantastic even better? p.s. I've sent Doug my pictures to be included on the site, we really haven't

 unbelievable!! Great to catch up with those I haven't kept in touch with. Whoever designed the name tags is to be commended
 - in 99% of my people photos they are readable and an excellent way to pass on to Arliss. Merv Symons and crew -
 THANK YOU - your ability to cater to a crowd the reunion size was nothing short of amazing. Doug - the CD is excellent,
 but after viewing the web site all year, I wasn't surprised - much appreciated. ECI - hate to think of it going down - such
 memories come flooding back - will be like losing an old friend - as Valley View, before it was. THANKS TO ALL ONCE

 did what a lot of other High Schools dream of doing: rekindle the friendships of our schooldays. Seeing the halls and class
 rooms of ECI. Driving around Estevan; seeing the old house we lived in, remembering the The Canada Cafe; the Starlite
 Drive-In; ...and so much more..I am sure most of us will return to have another look around, someday, but July 21,22 & 23
 were special, as were the Days we attended 'Dear Old E.C.I.'....Good Luck to all.........

 Comments: Great party. Glad I came down on Wednesday, should have stayed until Monday. Bonny and I had a great time.
 Very good to see all from ECI and IHH. The golf was great. Congrates to all who worked so hard to put this together. Mr.
 Rooks, Mr. Turner and the cadets did a great job at entertaining and looking after us wayward drinking people. I was
 suprised at how many people I had forgotten about and also how many people I didn't realize that knew me. Once again ,
 very enjoyable, and what's this about 2005? Anyone who missed coming to this party, well what can I say.......... !! The
 glasses that I lost were foud by Coach K. who in 35 years still can't remember my name. Keep in touch

 Comments: Can hardly believe that one week ago today I was in Estevan at the Elks checking out people I had not seen for
 35 years!!! Ever in my lifetime again? I don't think so. Congratulations to the committee. Everything was very well organized -
 seemed to flow smoothly from where I was and the catering for the dinner was a "feat fantastic" in itself. We were fed within in
 one hour. Food was hot and delicious. Hats off to the Symon's. Great to see old/young school mates again. My old house is
 still there and the ravine that used to look so huge has diminished!!! Diane M., I missed u. Where was Joanne Skoberg? and
 Gail Dukart? and Bill Harris what's happening in 2005??? Cheers Iris.

 temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield." Alfred
 Tennyson (1809-1892) Dear friends, thank you for helping my minds eye to once again see me as a 17 year old. Certainly I
 saw everyone in the same light during the reunion. Our Estevan friends have lots to be proud of, Our teachers all have lots to
 be proud of. I'm so pleased that I got to play with Hugh Williams again. It's only 40 years since he taught me to play the
 trumpet! Thanks Hugh. And many, many thanks to Larry and his committee. We will be back in 2005!

 weekend was too short -- I wish the party could have gone on for about a month so we could have had time to sit down and
 have a big chat with everyone!! Thanks to all the organizers !! Words cannot express how much we enjoyed the event and
 enjoyed seeing everyone again.

 thank you to all who organized the reunion. You guys did an exceptional job and were amazing hosts. Saw many I hoped to,
 some I hadn't and missed some others. Solved some ancient mysteries too - like who put the dead snake on my shoulder at
 the class picnic when I wasn't looking!!!! And you did it for only $60.00 - WOW! I think you should be running this country.
 Love to everyone, Susan
