Semi grads celebrate 50 years

Two-date reunion for Peninsula high school grads capped off with dinner and dance

Nearly 100 Semiahmoo High School grads celebrated their 50-year reunion at White Rock’s waterfront late last month.

Members of Semiahmoo High School class of 1963 from as far away as Ontario and Nevada gathered to reminisce about their teenage years July 20-21.

The grad class produced four Miss White Rocks – Jackie Clarke (1962), Bev Stavness (1963), Judy Fiske (1964) and Marilyn Cryer (1966) – as well as 1964 King Neptune Bob Davey and 1962 Cloverdale Rodeo Queen Barb Kenny.

The group of former students – and former teacher Ed Carlin – took in a presentation of the early history of the community during a tour of the White Rock Museum by manager of museum archives Hugh Ellenwood.

The two-day event was capped off with a dinner and dance at the Pacific Inn.
