Homewood Reunion Background and Contacts
A group of former students met in April, 2017 with the idea of putting up a memorial in Homewood to commemorate the local school. Most of the school districts in the area (Garnett, Brigdenly, Hopeland, etc.) already have a memorial plaque in place. We're planning a reunion to celebrate the school and dedicate the plaque.
The village was a gathering-place for several surrounding school districts. With the one-room schools of the era being usually only 3-4 miles apart, Homewood tended to be the center of a much larger community. The organizers have decided to have the reunion also celebrate Homewood village proper with the Co-op, grain elevators, curling rink, churches, railway station, etc. as part of our project.
We would love to see all our Homewood friends at the reunion. You're invited! Whether it was school picnics, field days, curling, skating, church, or just going to the Co-op or Latham's store, we'd love to have you attend the reunion.
In addition to the school memorial and reunion, the Canadian Aviation Historical Society will be dedicating a memorial for the first helicopter flight in Canada. As many know, in the 1930’s three Froebe brothers built the first helicopter in Canada that actually got off the ground. It happened right in Homewood! We are excited that this dedication will be part of the day.
