40 years of Sunnybrook gathered together to celebrate the anniversary of the school. We had a wonderful time visiting, looking through albums, checking out the materials, and sharing memories of our Sunnybrook days. Former teachers Gerry Tobin, Gerrie Scott, and Laura Tobin were in attendance, as well as some of the members of the first Sunnybrook classes. Mary Sloat, founder and owner of the original school, shared memories of the first days and years of Sunnybrook. It was a day of reminiscing about the first school experiences for many Lancaster families.
In the evening many families and community members enjoyed some fabulous entertainment by the Islay Mist Ceilidh group, harpist Bill Tobin, and a surprise performance by Sunnybrook alumnus, Mcgowan Southworth, who sang his original song Anywhere With You. In tribute to his earliest memories, Mcgowan invited all of the children in the audience to join him at the front, and everyone participated in singing in a round. Thank you to all of the great performers who shared their time and talent in honor of Sunnybrook!
