A group of high school graduates from Calumet Island decided to get the old gang back together, meeting just down the street from where their old stomping grounds used to reside.
Although the building may be gone, the 1966-67 grade 10 students had no problem reigniting old friendships and sharing plenty of stories of years gone by when they gathered at the Café de L'Île Saturday afternoon.
“There’s an excitement in the air,” said Elizabeth Kovacs, a sentiment enforced by the various conversations buzzing through the room.
Kovacs explained that the last time they held a reunion, in 1986, it was much harder to reach out to some of their old friends.
