BCSS grads come home to celebrate 50 years

*Hairstyles and outfits may have changed since graduation

Familiar faces came back to the Boundary last weekend, some after many years away, to greet one another and catch up at the 50th anniversary of Boundary Central Secondary School in Midway. The reunion, held at the Rock Creek Fair Grounds, brought out dozens of the school’s alumni to celebrate their school and shared history.
