Welcome to the Homewood Reunion website.
The website is currently a work in progress and we hope it will continue to improve.
A group of former students got together in April, 2017 with the idea of putting up a plaque 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.
That said, 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 centre of a much larger community. The organizers have decided to have the reunion also celebrate Homewood village proper with the Co-op, 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.
Please let us know you are coming. Submit your name, email and/or phone number. Let us have your comments or if you would like to help. Please send us your pictures to add to website. Pass the word along to other Homewood friends.
