Event organiser and former student Peter Gilmour said the reunion would feature one main event for all 1960s to present-day students at the Top Pub.

‘‘We have about 100 attending so far, but are hoping to get many more than that,’’ he said.

Initially, two separate functions were to be held simultaneously at the Top Pub and Bottom Pub respectively, but it has been decided that it would be more practical to have one event for all ages at the Cobram Hotel (Top Pub) on Station St.

A Facebook page and and blog spot have been set up that are jam-packed with photos and memories posted by former students keen to share the memories.

A time capsule buried during the 25th anniversary will also be dug up during the celebrations.

On Saturday, November 10 a function for all past and present students will be held at Cobram-Barooga Golf Club, in Golf Course Rd in Barooga, in the Murray Lounge from 7pm, which includes a meal.

Sports club buses will also run that night.

Cobram Secondary College’s Vicki Nolan will show former students through the college at 1.45pm on Saturday.

On Sunday, November 11 there will be a ‘‘recovery brunch’’ at Thompsons Beach from 10am.

The cost for the whole weekend is $60.

People interested in attending can phone Peter Gilmour on 0421 844 310, or Val Eddy on 0487 511 859 or visit the website
