You’re most welcome to attend the Lake Shore Reunion on June 9, 2012, even if you did not attend these schools

I’m very pleased to have this opportunity to share information about the Lake Shore Reunion on June 9, 2012.

Phil Gray, who forwarded the information, reports that while looking for photos , he uncovered some interesting history about these schools. “All 3 schools grew over the years,” notes Phil Gray, “as new sections were added to suit their needs. It’s interesting to see the contrast between the old and new construction. I found the older buildings were made to last longer, with better quality materials, and classic style.”

Because he couldn’t find a usable photo of Alderwood Collegiate, he took that one himself. “It’s the site of Steven Spielberg’s Falling Skies TV series. I’d be interested to know more about how Spielberg ended up there.”

Here’s how to order tickets

New Toronto High,1966



Gayle Thomas is organizing her second Lake Shore Area Reunion for Sat, 9 June 2012, at the Long Branch Legion. The party goes from 5:00 pm until midnight. Tickets are $30, and that includes a catered barbecue dinner. Donnie Meeker and the Blues Lemmings will be rockin’ the house with classic R&B, and special guest appearances.

Gayle’s previous reunion drew over 1500 revelers, so we have reserved both floors of the hall for this special occasion, and both bars will be in service.

If you attended one of the three original south Etobicoke high schools – Mimico High, New Toronto Secondary, and Alderwood Collegiate — you do not want to miss this party! It is also open to the general public. We expect the Lake Shore Area Reunion to sell out, AGAIN!

WHEN:  Sat, 9 June 2012, 5:00 pm – 12 midnight

WHERE: Long Branch Legion (branch 101), 3850 Lake Shore Blvd West, Etobicoke (west of Brown’s Line)

    I may be mistaken but,
    the above picture entitled ‘New Toronto High, 1966’
    was actually taken during the 1963-64 school year.
