Fred Larwood of McCreary dropped in to the Neepawa Banner & Press office this week to let us know he was planning to attend the 1952-53 Normal School reunion at Portage la Prairie on Sept. 11 and 12.

The event will be held at the Canad Inns and Mr. Larwood said he is looking forward to meeting his classmates. He noted that Neepawa residents Ivan Traill and Evelyn McConnell were part of that class and he hoped to see them there. Normal School was the name given to the formal school teachers training program. Prospective and permit teachers could attend for training sessions as they worked their way towards furthering their education.
