TCCS celebrates 75th anniversaryPublished 8:59pm Wednesday, October 3, 2012
Terra Ceia Christian School will bring back memories this weekend with food, sports and tons of stories. The school will celebrate its 75th anniversary with events scheduled Friday and Saturday.
Principal Jon Postma came to the school about 18 months ago. He said he will take the opportunity to get to know the alumni and surrounding community.
“I’m just really excited to get to know them and the ways that God has used this school as a foundation in their lives,” he said.
The celebration starts at 6 p.m. Friday with an alumni basketball game. Alumni cheerleaders will cheer teams on.
Saturday’s events start at 10 a.m. with games and tours of the school.
“And we’re going to have a school museum of artifacts of days gone by,” said Postma.
A 1 p.m. praise and worship service will include a special ceremony commemorating the school’s new debt-free status. Postma said they recently made their final loan payment.
After the service, alumni will be asked to share and record oral histories of their time at the school. Organizers will also be scanning any photos alumni bring with them.
Keyzer Catering will serve dinner at Saturday’s event, but it’s the food booths that will stir up the memories.
“We’re pulling in some old favorites from the Dutch Festival that used to be held here,” Postma said.
Oliebollen will be available at one booth. The Dutch pastry was a favorite.
The school used to sell sausage links as a yearly fundraiser. The recipe has been resurrected especially for the event.
“It should be a wonderful day of people getting together,” Postma said.
