June 17, 2015 - Bus Tour - Must Register in advance
Wednesday, June 17 at 1 p.m.
On June 17, 2015, a nostalgic school bus trip will take you on a two hour tour of the pioneer schools and churches still standing in the former St. Vincent Township, now part of the Municipality of Meaford. It was in June, 1970, 45 years ago, that the one room schools were locked for the last time. Marjorie Davison, a former student of Riverside School, and the last teacher at that school, will lead you on a reminiscent tour through one of the most scenic parts of the township. Camera enthusiasts will have a chance to photograph scenes of beautiful Georgian Bay and the surrounding countryside.
Due to a time restraint, the bus will leave Riverside Community Centre (7th Line South of Highway 26 ) at 1:00 pm sharp and return at 3:00 pm. To help defray costs, a $5.00 fee will be imposed on each passenger. Refreshments and a time of social discourse will be held in the Community Centre at the end of the excursion.
To ensure that there is space for everyone who wishes to attend, please contact Marjorie Davison 519-538-3408 or Frank Bassingthwaite 519-538-3661 before June 17th.
