So, there we were, back in Labrador City Collegiate for the first time in 20 years, walking down the hall from the Teacher's Entrance, past the Office then by the windows that overlooked the gym...the first thing noticeable was the din roar of noise rising up the stairwells and down the hall! The racket grew as we descended into the crowd into the All Purpose Room and were engulfed by a swarm of apparent strangers...except everyone wore name tags baring familiar monikers. Thus began the first ever LCC High School Reunion. The next few hours turned into several days of laughter, merriment and WAY too much fun. We joked and reminisced, toasted those no longer with us, vowed to keep in touch and in many cases actually did!
The events of the reunion are reflected in the drawing above...or at least some of the events (that I can remember)! What's not reflected are those things that are better left unsaid...or undrawn...these have been omitted to protect the guilty! 'nuff said. We had a blast of a lifetime.
I went back a few years later to a community reunion of both Labrador City and Wabush which was also a lot of fun, but nothing will ever compare to the first time I saw hundreds of cases of beer...coming out of the old canteen one by one and two by two!
