PETAWAWA - This weekend, May 18 to May 20, General Panet High School, once located on CFB Petawawa will be celebrating its 60th Anniversary.

We have kept in touch with many students (past and present) who are looking forward to returning for the 60th Anniversary Celebration, and every effort is being made to locate as many former staff and students as possible to make the event an even greater success.

This 60th Anniversary Celebration is even more important than ever now that the old General Panet High School building has been demolished and replaced with the brand new Canex Store. General Panet High School has ceased to exist as an educational institution as well as Pinecrest Public School and General Lake Public School, all three have been amalgamated into Petawawa’s brand new Valour JK – 12 School located on Leeder Lane behind the Petawawa Civic Center.

All former students and staff are invited to attend the following activities:

Friday night Meet & Greet with D.J. at the Petawawa Civic Center 6 p.m. until 1 a.m.

Saturday afternoon BBQ with former teachers of General Panet High School 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Saturday afternoon tour of the new Valour JK-12 School building (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.)

Saturday night Dinner and Dance (live band and D.J.) at the Petawawa Civic Center (Dinner is at 6 p.m. and the doors open for the dance at 8 p.m.)

Sunday brunch 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Petawawa Civic Center.

There will be golfing at the Petawawa Golf Club at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 19th (Call Pat Sanford at 613-385-1585 to reserve a spot). The reunion is hosting horseshoes and mini-putt at the Petawawa Civic Center Kin Hut on Saturday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
