Then and now — The grad class of 2016

Rossland's grad class of 2016 was photographed in 1999; those who remain got together to recreate the photo 17 years later.

In June 1999, local photographer Larry Doell took a photo of the graduating class of 2016, who were one-year-olds, and their parents, which ran in the newspaper. Now the class of 2016 is all grown up and off to explore the world of work and post-secondary education.

Not everyone who was in the original photo still lives in Rossland, and some weren’t available for the photo, but the grads who did come brought their parents to celebrate this milestone in their lives.

Calling the class of 2033!

Speaking of the future, the Rossland News is planning ahead so that the class of 2033 can have its own then and now photo.

Parents whose children will graduate in 2033 can bring their future grads to Rossglen Park on Thursday, June 23 at 6 p.m. for a photo, which will run in the Rossland News. Seventeen years from now, we hope the photo can be recreated just as Doell’s 1999 photo was.
