ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hi!
Hope you all enjoyed Thanksgiving and now onto fall and winter activities!! I recently came across this video on youtube and had to share it with everyone!! Did you know that Jon Montgomery, our hero Canadian Olympian, is the son of a former Eltonian - Joan Gilmour Montgomery.  Grab a tissue and get set to watch a very touching experience as the mom of an Olympian.

Thanks to Dennis Nevin for this submission - Dennis found this article at an antique shop in Brandon laying amongst furniture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

October 19th will mark the 3rd anniversary of this web site!!

There have been 35,590 hits and 658 classmates have created a profile.

Keep it going!!

 

 

With a successful 50th Anniversary Reunion nicely behind us, the Organizing Committee met on Oct 12th to debrief and review the final financial picture.  In the end, we are happy to report that all expenses covered and a surplus was realized.
 
A number of factors came in to play to help achieve the surplus including private and corporate donations, a higher than projected number of registrants, and bar sales that exceeded expectations (go figure?!). With all bills paid, there will be over $11,000 available for the Legacy Fund. The Committee was very pleased that we were able to deliver a full, yet reasonable-priced event and still come out ahead!

At our meeting, the Organizing Committee voted to utilize the surplus funds as follows:
1) The web site will be maintained at least for one more year. The cost of this will be between $125 and $200/ year depending on which type of "membership" we maintain (yet to be determined).  The higher end membership may enable us to upload more pictures, or videos files that require more "space" on the server.

2) ~60% of remaining funds will be directed toward capitol purchases for Elton Collegiate and/ or the Breakfast Program at Elton.  Included in these items will be a new GRAD PHOTO DISPLAY CASE (similar to the existing one at Elton that has reached its capacity); a display case for memorabilia (such as Original ECI jackets, sweaters, cheerleader outfits and team jerseys); and other items such as "small appliances" for the Breakfast program.

3) ~40% of remaining funds will be directed toward scholarships to be set up for the next 4 years to be awarded to  Elton graduates seeking to pursue post secondary education. The Committee favored offering ~
(2) $500 scholarships each year to students who, may not have achieved the highest grade, but who have demonstrated hard work, commitment to academic achievement, and have enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

A small committee comprised of Janice Meadows, Carol Cardiff, Susan Meadows and Judy Marvin will meet to finalize the Legacy fund distribution plan including scholarship administration.

If there are any Elton Alumni students/ staff or family who would like to contribute additional funds to extend or sustain the Legacy Fund, donations may be made to
 FORREST SPECIAL PROJECTS GROUP (FSPG): ELTON 50th LEGACY FUND and sent to:
T. Birkhan c/o BDO, 148 10th Street Brandon, MB. R7A 4E6. Receipts for
Charitable donations will be issued as FSPG is a Registered Charity.

Thanks again for your part in making the Elton 50th a success!  Don't forget to update your profile from time to time, and send us pictures, stories, etc so the WEB site stays current and interesting.

Have a great year ahead!

Judy Marvin and Janice Meadows

Thank you
I would like to thank the Elton 50th reunion committee for the wonderful weekend. It was certainly great to see so many former students from my first classes to my very last although the visits were much too short . Each greeting and visit was special and meant such a lot to me. A special thank you to the 1962 grade twelve class for the kind tribute and plaque. I will treasure it always. (You must have short memories!) You were a special class partly because you were the first graduating class in the school but also because you were a great bunch of “kids”. I’ve thought of you often over the years and in fact can pretty well remember where each one of you sat in the classroom. Robert, Donald ,Wesley on one side. Diane, Charol, Dianne and Donna at the back on the other side. Dennis , Bill and Bryan at the front. Beatty ,Nelson and Pat holding down the back seats. Correct me if I’m wrong. It seems to me that most of the Forrest students were on one side of the room and Douglas and Justice on the other side. I wonder why? I have been very proud of you and proud to have known you. You made quite an impression on me. I wish you well in your retirement and hope someday someone will give you as much pleasure as you have given me.
Best wishes to all . Dorothy
