The history of old Vegreville is being kept alive by a group of dedicated volunteers, who are organizing the 125th anniversary celebrations
Old Vegreville will come alive on July 20th, as the celebration of the Hamlet's 125 year history takes place at the Old Vegreville School on Holden Road.
Secretary Treasurer of the Old Vegreville Social Society, Betty Benoit, says the event has become more poignant and important since the 120th anniversary in 2014.
She adds that they have a full afternoon of socializing, memorializing and food planned for the day.
Benoit adds that those interested in attending the 125th anniversary are asked to RSVP by giving her a call at 780-632-7303 by July 15th.
