Class of 1976
L'Anse Creuse High School
Central and North - Website


Our History

In September of 1963, we all started our journey through the public education system. In the L'Anse Creuse District the schools that we attended were - Herman Klix, Jefferson, South River, Neil E. Reid, and Green Elementary - with Marie C. Graham opening it's doors in the fall of 1965. Some of us were there from the very beginning, while others transferred in from other districts to become Lancers.

As we worked our way through the Elementary Schools, Junior High School loomed on the horizon. In 1969 we all came together in Junior High School and for the most part met the rest of our classmates for the first time, many new friendships were made.

In 1972 it was off to high school where we would hone our skills and God given talents to carry us on in life's journey. Half days were the norm for all of us as the High School was bursting at the seams, and the need for a new high school was overdue.

Our class was designated as the split class, the borders were drawn and the students west of Harper were selected to be the first graduating class to attend the new high school. In January of 1975, our class was officially split. We were now Lancers and Crusaders!

In June of 1976 we graduated, some of us went off to college and some of us went into the workforce to begin our journey through life.

Throughout the first twenty years, our class reunions were held separately.

In 1996 we came back together as a full class for our combined 20 Year Class Reunion. It was a huge success and everyone who attended really enjoyed it.

In October of 2006, we held our 30 Year Class Reunion. Again this was a combined event and by most accounts, it was the best reunion our graduates had ever attended with people coming from all over the country. Many friendships were rekindled!

The committees from the Class of 1976, both Central and North, have agreed that the way to move forward in the future is as a combined class. The last reunion has inspired a lot of great ideas to help keep the class together as a whole - monthly meetings, an annual picnic, and a dedicated Lancer/Crusader Class of 1976 website.

As we now enter our middle age years, we have come full circle as a class - back to the days when we first walked in the doors of our Junior High School together. We do not see eachother every day as we once did due to our obligations as parents, and yes even Grandparents, and the different roads our lives have taken - but the last reunion has sparked a common interest for many of our graduates. There is a feeling of excitement to continue forward and to try to rekindle the friendships of our youth, and maybe create new ones.

In conclusion, I am sure we all look back more and more with fondness to our younger days and realize how lucky we were to grow up when we did.

Life is a unique journey and some of us are granted more time than others. Over the remainder of our lifetimes I think there is a good feeling in reconnecting with old friends and acquaintances and sharing our life's experiences. Even though we are thirty years further into this journey with gray hair, less hair, and we can't see as good as we once did - reconnecting with our former classmates almost makes you feel as if you have discovered the fountain of youth!
