WELCOME

Vernon Barford 50 Year Anniversary Celebration = June 1, 2018

 

Vernon Barford is proud to host a 50 year school anniversary celebration on June 1, 2018.  All alumni are invited to join us on this day and note that as students are the heart of any school we are structuring the celebration so that it occurs during the day and connection between current students and alumni can potentially occur.  This is being accomplished by hosting our VB multicultural celebration on the same day and having an afternoon full of fun activities for students and guests (e.g., food trucks, access to VB archives, fun games and events, school tours, etc.)  Alumni are encourage to plan to visit the school in the afternoon (1:00 - 3:00 pm) on this day and be aware that while no formal program will occur we invite and welcome alumni to visit and join in the scheduled events.

 

Additional details will be released closer to the date but please mark your calendar and in the spirit of "Once a Blue, Always a Blue" we look forward to hopefully seeing lots of alumni on this day.
