General Amherst High School is gearing up to host a final public tour, to coincide with its 100-year anniversary and closing of the school as a new one opens in the fall of 2022.

The 100 Year Celebration Committee, led by Amherstburg residents Greg Scott, Jen Desjardins-Grondin, and Linden Crain has already started to plan the event, which is set to take place on Saturday, May 14th, 2022, from 12pm to 7pm. Both inside and outside the school will be available to visit, including Bill Wigle Park located next to the school, which is set to host several activities throughout the day.

Those attending will be able to walk the halls of the school, tour decade rooms created by the school’s Leadership Class, explore memorabilia, stop by the food truck station, and enjoy free local music performed by students and alumni.

“As a graduate of Amherst High and long-time resident of Amherstburg, I’m excited to help host this once-in-a-lifetime event that the entire community can enjoy,” said Linden Crain.

The 1-day event will be free to attend, but donations and t-shirt orders are encouraged to help support facilities and programs at the new high school. Starting today, 100 Year Anniversary t-shirts can be purchased online at the Accurate Creations website, with a portion of every sale going toward amenities at the new school.

The 100 Year Celebration is also being advertised on Facebook leading up to the event. Follow for updates at
