TRURO, N.S. - If you were a member of the Cobequid Educational Centre’s graduating class in 1978 there’s a group of people looking for you.

A committee has been formed to organize a 40th reunion, which will be held next summer, and efforts are being made to reach as many former classmates as possible.

“We’ve started a Facebook page, ‘Cobequid Educational Centre Friends 1978,’” said Greg Perry. “We have close to 200 classmates on board, which is nearly half the class. Those not on Facebook will be contacted by email or phone with details about the reunion.”

The last reunion was held 10 years ago and Cathy Hinton is excited about bringing some people back to town for the event.

“Many of our classmates have not been back to Truro for years,” she said. “For some this will be the first reunion they’ve attended.”

The reunion will be held on Saturday, July 28, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn. It will include music, prizes, old photos, a class photo and a video memorial for the 31 members of the class who have passed away.
