A time to reminisce about Strange School days

S.S. # 4 Strange/Laskay Reunion
Sat., Sept. 14 ~ 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Former students of Strange Public School are invited to attend and reminisce on Saturday, September 14, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Laskay Community Hall.   There will be a pot luck lunch and dinner.   Call or email for your dinner tickets (no charge) at 647-989-1913, or    You can also visit the Facebook Group: S.S. # 4 Strange/Laskay Reunion.   Laskay Hall is located at 12840 Weston Road, south of the King Road, in the hamlet of Laskay.   I will be attending as my dear wife's escort.   I am not a former student, but my wife is, and she has forbidden me to say how many years ago that was.   A reader of this blogsite left some comments recently in response to a blog I had written about Laskay.   She went on to say: "Our family revered Miss Arbuckle as a teacher and the ones left still speak in awe of what she could accomplish in that little country school".   I spoke with the revered Betty (Arbuckle) Dew a couple of weeks ago and she said it was her intention to attend the reunion.   It should be fun.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. Great posting Barry! We are all looking forward to the reunion! One teacher is coming that taught 1955-1957 when she was only 17 years old.

  2. Sorry I could not attend . However I did not hear about this reunion until afterwards.

    My father was the secretary treasurer of S S No 4 for about 20 years.
