The old school never saw so many people since it was filled with students from K 12. Between all the wonderful jigs and reels that were played, you could almost hear the voices of Master McCarthy and teachers Alice Fahey and Angela Hickey, just to name a few. They danced and sang until the Omega Speedmaster Tv
Hard times at home usually lead to people packing up and heading to the capital city, or to greener pastures on the mainland of Canada.
On Saturday there was a Mass that saw the St. Joseph's Church filled to the rafters. It was followed by Omega Seamaster Gmt Blue
I was one of the hundreds of people who enjoyed the weekend activities. No, I never helped out; I was asked but was already committed to my studies. Instead, I enjoyed the reunion as a member of the community and marvelled at how each event went smoothly into the next. I have memories to last a Omega Women's Speedmaster
Despite our province's newfound oil riches, there are many stories about smaller communities in rural Newfoundland and Labrador that have died or are dying a slow death due to poor economic times.

The committee had asked a local resident to write a song about the River. Written by Randy Stone, who also served as guest speaker, the song as sung by Justin Bowman of Carbonear.
Chaired by Pat Collins, the committee's executive included: Phyllis Cleary Reyonlds, Alice Littlejohn Hunt and Maureen Collins Callahan. Sub committees worked on different events, about 20 in all. They made what seemed impossible, possible.
For those of us in attendance it seemed like everything flowed easily and perfectly.
Many years ago, I left Riverhead and moved to Ontario to work. After about five years I returned. I thought it was the pull from the province that made me long for home, but now I know for sure it was this place called Riverhead that I pined for, and where I will live for the rest of my life.
That is just what happens when people with kind hearts and good intentions Omega Seamaster Professional 300m Movement come together with a purpose. The endless hours of meetings and fundraising culminated in the first ever Riverhead Reunion, but hopefully not the last.
We realized that Riverhead is more than a place on the map, it is a community with great history and spirit and people. Hopefully, the Reunion Committee will stay together so that on a yearly basis we can have Riverhead Days for many years to come.

The official opening of Danny Cleary Drive took place on Friday, and on Friday night a dinner and dance.
This was very evident on the weekend of Aug. 7 9 when a small group of volunteers who had been working together for just over a year, brought together over 300 people for a celebration of the past, present and the future.
The celebration was called the Riverhead Reunion.
On Sunday there was a service at the graveyard followed by family day at the old school. There were many fun activities for the children including face painting, the fish out pond and bouncy castle along with free hotdogs and drinks.
There is no doubt that the economy plays a significant role in the viability of a community. However, in my opinion, the heartbeat of a community is its volunteers.
a "Kitchen Party" in the old St. Joseph's School (now the Riverhead Hall).
But none of this could have been possible without the hundreds of hours of work by the volunteers who gave of their time and talent to put the reunion weekend together.
I hope the volunteers realize what a wonderful thing they did for Riverhead. They put life back into the old school and gave a sense of community to one and all.
