Re­union be­ing plan­ning for Cobe­quid Ed­u­ca­tional Cen­tre class of ’78

Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - TRURO DAILY NEWS

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.
