Reunion for class of 1951

Agassiz alumna meeting on Fall Fair weekend

Next weekend will not only mark the 107th Agassiz Fall Fair for the entire community. It is also the 60th anniversary for the Agassiz High School’s 1951 graduating class.

Muriel Fedorkew is one of the original 15 graduates from that year, and still lives in Agassiz. She and 10 other 1951 graduates will be spending next weekend reuniting, with several planned events.

There will be a meet and greet at the Friendship House on Friday, September 16 at 3:30 p.m., hosted by Sonja and Orest Gorchynski of California. That event will run for two hours and is open to well-wishers.

The group and their spouses and guests will then have dinner at Silvano’s. On the following day, September 17, they’ll meet for a wind-up barbecue at the home of fellow 1951 Agassiz graduate, Ted Westlin.

The group also plans to take in events at the Agassiz Fall Fair.
