  • 1980

In 1980 the Jasper High School held a high school reunion which was to include everyone who had ever graduated from Jasper High School, beginning with the year 1914, all the way to 1980. The idea for this event, as well as some of the funding, came from the Provincial Government of Alberta, as 1980 was the province's 75th anniversary. The Province had a program entitled "Homecoming 1980" which was run by Travel Alberta. Locally various committees made of volunteers were put into place to set up this event with expectations of 2000 to 2500 attendees. Two major components of the project were undertaken. Firstly there was a quilt with the names of all Jasper High School graduates, and secondly a large photo album containing pictures of graduates and their families from past and present. There were also many clippings from newspapers compiled which were then photocopied.
