THE 1967 TIME CAPSULE HAS BEEN RAISED!

382 alumni on the front lawn and 25 alumni watching the live broadcast from the teacher’s room witnessed the raising of Delta’s Centennial time capsule on Friday May 26, 2017 (which was exactly 50 years to the day that it was originally lowered.)
The auditorium was close to capacity with alumni, current staff/students, honoured guests and the media watching the behind-the-scenes video of the exhumation of the capsule and a slide presentation of life back in 1967.
Some of the contents of the capsule were presented as part of the assembly with the remainder on display for all to see in the cafeteria after the presentation. The opportunity to walk the halls again, reconnect with former classmates and reminisce about their time at Delta made this event one of the most well attended alumni events since the 75th reunion in 2000.
In total, we had approximately 750 people in the auditorium, 25 people with disabilities watching the broadcast in the teacher’s room and close to 2,000 alumni watching the broadcast over the internet from all over Canada and the U.S.
The spirit of the school was at an all-time high and everyone left with the experience of a lifetime. What a fantastic day that was!
About the Delta Alumni Association
After the 75th Reunion in May, 2000, a number of Alumni were inspired to establish the foundation of an Alumni Association. A Musical Night in February 2002 was presented to display the musical talents of the present Music Department students and Graduate/Volunteers and also to generate interest in order to create our very own Alumni Association. On April 15, 2002, the Delta Alumni Association was formed.
Since that date, the Association has hosted a variety of events to help raise funds for equipment and materials needed by various school departments. The elected volunteer board meets every second month during the school year to manage the affairs of the Association, plan goals and to co-ordinate upcoming events. The Association holds an Annual General Membership Meeting in January when the current membership is given an update on the state of the Association, an opportunity to run for an elected position on the Board and above all, it gives the membership a voice in how they would like the Association to continue.
