June 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the last graduating class of Shelburne High School (SHS). To celebrate the occasion, the Class of 1964 is organizing an all classes SHS reunion on July 18 and 19. All former SHS students, their grade school classmates, families, friends, and teachers are encouraged to attend.

On Friday, July 18: Come and go, come and stay, visit old friends, mingle, view old yearbooks and other memorabilia from noon to 6pm in the meeting room of the town offices. Snacks and drinks available.

On Saturday, July 19: Stop by at 4pm to take a class photo followed by a free buffet dinner at 5pm in the town offices. Those interested in donating a dish should email Ethel Spear Brousseau. Dinner will be followed by remarks, a special teacher recognition program, maybe some surprise entertainment (not the Korny Kapers) and more time to relieve old memories and create some new ones.
