Flood of new memories from CSS reunion

The halls of Chilliwack secondary school were alive with reunions and storytelling.

This past weekend’s CSS Hello, Goodbye Reunion for Chilliwack senior graduates from 1950 to 2012 (including this year’s Class of 2013) to celebrate before the old building is demolished and the new school brought to life, was beyond spectacular!

From sold-out Friday night socials held all over the community, to the many amazing events on Saturday hosting throngs of past students of every age, school spirit could be found everywhere.  The halls of the old school were alive with reunions and storytelling. Saturday night came alive with five bands blazing the stage with Chilliwack talent and the AgRec Centre filled with 1,500 celebrating together until closing.

The only draw back from the weekend is that now, with a brand new plethora of memories and stories of old and new friends originating from the building that brought us all together in the first place, it makes it doubly hard to watch her go down.

On behalf of the Planning Committee of Hello, Goodbye, we wish to thank our incredible sponsors, volunteers and former grads (from all points around the world), who fuelled this event to be over and above what any of us originally dreamed it to be. www.hellogoodbye.ca
