The cornerstone students of Murdoch MacKay Collegiate are being invited to reconnect.

Students who attended the school’s first two years – 1963-64 and 1964-65 – are invited to a reception on Fri., Oct. 4. The event, held on the weekend of the school's 50th anniversary celebrations, will be held at the Transcona Legion at 117 Regent Ave. W. at 7 p.m. Organizer Lorne Tyson noted staff who worked at the school in those years are also welcome.

Tyson is proud to have attended the school in its infancy.

"We were the first, and remember the great start of our school. We created the school motto,' Carpe Diem " , we named the Clansmen, we developed the first yearbook, and we enjoyed the leadership of Mr. George Derenchuk and our wonderful teachers," Tyson noted in an email.

Those interested in attending should confirm their attendance by emailing Tyson at tysonl@mts.net or sending a letter to Lorne Tyson, 21 President’s Court, Winnipeg, MB, R2C 0T1.
