A new beginning in Lumby

Spring is here and another tradition throughout the educated world takes place. Yes, once again it’s time for the high school graduation. Like so many other towns and communities in British Columbia, the village of Lumby is no exception.

Charles Bloom secondary school will hold Grade 12 graduation ceremonies on Friday. This celebration of the transformation from childhood to young adults begins at 5 p.m. in the school gym. The event is open to all who would like to attend. The graduates, all dressed to the nines, receive their recognition for 12 long years of hard work and study. It’s also a time when proud parents can see their child up on stage, ready to take on the world, as they reflect back on the day when they had to let go of that little hand on their first day of Grade 1.

The second part of the ceremony takes place at the Lumby curling club at 7 p.m., where dinner is served by Big Steve’s catering. After dinner, grads will mingle with friends and family before they depart at 11 p.m. for Scandia Fun Centre, for their all-night safe grad event. Throughout the year, the grads, with a little help from their parents and teachers, held many fundraisers supported by the community to help pay for this fun event.
