Homecoming 2023 update:

A large mixed bunch of people happily filled the Creston Room on September 16 to eat, drink and be merry at the Homecoming dinner and dance.  This was a sold-old crowd at the Rec centre on Saturday night and from what we've heard, everyone enjoyed the evening.  The presence of the Ambassadors set the nostalgic feel in the air.  This band, our own Creston Battle of the Bands winners, has brought so many of us together in the past 9 years.  We are all grateful to them for the chance once again to share and relive those teenage 60's years of rock and roll.

On October 5th, the final committe meeting was held.  Discussions included the views being shared by committee members from friends and family who attended the Homecoming weekend.  Overall, feedback was positive.  People had fun!!

A few pictures taken at the Creston Room of the decorations for this 1960's themed evening are now included on the website and you can view if you go to the top of the Homepage and click on the tab reading 2023 Homecoming.  If there are other pictures out there that we can add, please send to Pat Paterson and they will be added to the website.

A big thankyou to everyone for their participation. You made the 2023 Homecoming another memorable Creston event. 



There is a change in plans for the Saturday afternoon car show.  The CV Cruisers are unable to park their vehicles in the high school parking lot because of a volleyball tournament happening on the September 15/16 weekend.  Their cars/trucks will now be displayed out at the Overwaitea (Save-On) mall in front of the empty Saan's store from 1-4.

Also, there is a Rotary Golf Tournament happening on Sunday, September 17.  Cost is $70.00 and will include dinner.  To register, call the Pro Shop.

There are many things to do while you're in Creston.  We are looking forward to seeing many old friends and family.  Only a couple of days and our Homecoming will begin!


The committee you see below (consisting of PCSS classmates from the years 1960 to 1969) had their final meeting a few days ago.  Working as a team, everyone has contributed in some way to make the Homecoming weekend a success.  We are looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks!
