GRAVENHURST — Guess who’s not coming to dinner?

Most of the graduating class of 1977 is coming “home” for a reunion of former Gravenhurst High School students who are turning 60 this year.

And what a three-day party organizers Peggy Prindiville, Lori Miller Anderson and Sara Christensen have in store for their BFFs this weekend.

It’s going to be 72 hours of teenage memories, with more than 40 years of post-GHS tacked on.

All over town, events are planned, starting Friday night at Sawdust City at 6 p.m. with a welcome party; Saturday afternoon there’s a brown bag lunch at Gull Lake Rotary Park at noon.

Saturday night is the big gala $100 dinner and dance at Dock on the Bay.

There will be lots of garnet and gold. And bushels full of cranberries for the tables, courtesy of Blake Johnston, who’s coming from his farm in Nova Scotia, according to their FB page.

A free pre-dinner social meet-and-greet is the confirmed best time to run into the greying grads.

From 5:30 to 7 p.m. they’ll all be at a free cocktail hour.

An a number of former teachers and friends have been invited to mingle, share old times and catch up on the successes of the 77 Class.

Sunday morning they’ll gather one more time for breakfast at 9 a.m. at the Old Mill Restaurant, formerly Sloans.
