I’m going to date myself as I write this post! I have gotten a bit behind on keeping this Belgravia blog updated as I have been immersed in, among other things, planning my 20th High School Reunion which is taking place on the weekend of July 23rd – 25th this summer! I grew up here in Truro and graduated from Cobequid Educational Centre in 1990, valedictorian of a class of 400+ students. At the time, I was also the treasurer of both the Students’ Council and the A-Class. This means I am automatically on the committee which plans the reunions. (I wonder if we were told that at the time?!)
For various reasons – including but not limited to – jobs, family, life & geography, we did not have a ten nor a fifteen year reunion. It was decided that we could NOT let twenty years go by without doing something! I am the only person on the committee who still lives in Truro, but with the fortunate timing of vacations last summer, we were able to get together here for lunch and make some plans and “The Class of 1990 and Friends” reunion was born! Since so many friendships overlapped different years, and since some people, ahem, took longer than others to graduate, we decided to include five years of CEC grads – the classes of 1988 – 1990.
With the big things now in place, we’ve released the website today and are starting to take registrations. It is going to be a great weekend, with a Wine & Cheese social here at the Belgravia, a 5k run, a family swim at Victoria Park Pool, a Reunion Dance and a closing brunch. The Truro Golf Club is offering discounted green fees for attendees that weekend, and we will be selling CEC T-Shirts to commemorate the occasion.

I can’t wait!
