Administrative history / Biographical sketch

The Clairmont Homecoming Committee operated between 1991 to 1992 to organize and run a homecoming event for current and former residents of Clairmont. This committee included multiple organizers, like Barbara Hofmeister, who planned the event and advertised registration both inside and outside the community through mass letter writing and articles in the Grande Prairie Herald-Tribune. The event was held from July 3 to July 5 1992 in Clairmont with an estimated 200 to 400 participants, with the committee dissolving after its conclusion.
