Iroquois – Seaway District High School is celebrating its 50th year since the amalgamation of Iroquois and Morrisburg High Schools with a weekend full of events on May 26-28, 2017.
Seaway District High School first opened its doors after the relocation of the town of Iroquois in the 1950s, and saw the amalgamation of two prior high schools: one in Morrisburg and an earlier one in Iroquois – which was destroyed when the St. Lawrence Seaway was built.
There will be memory rooms set up in various classrooms for every decade, as well as for Iroquois and Morrisburg High Schools. Each registrant will receive a commemorative souvenir of the occasion.
Details of the celebrations are as follows:
Friday, May 26 – open house, Wine & Cheese – 4:00 – 9:00 pm
Saturday, May 27 – memory rooms from noon – 1:00 pm, followed by induction of Hall of Excellence nominees (until 3:00 pm)
– Saturday evening dinner & dance starting at 6:00 pm
Sunday, May 28 – Ecumenical service at 10:00 am, followed by a BBQ and children’s activities from 11:00 – 1:00 pm)
All events will be held at the school, located at 2 Beach St., Iroquois, ON, except for the Sunday events, which will be held on the point at the Iroquois Locks.
