Class of '59 Update

September 2016

Over May 13-15, 2016, the Class of '59 joined with all 1950s classes for Reunion Weekend. Our dozen members present thought '50 era together a great idea!

At our Saturday morning Class meeting, our President Ron Strange, welcomed us all and thanked us for returning to campus for this weekend event. An important agenda item was to present Bim Bushell with Honourary Membership into our Class. An official framed scroll was presented to Bim recognizing her devoted attendance at every Reunion with her husband Clark for over forty years.

Also present was Susan Smith, Development Officer, who gave us an update on our Class Bursary Fund. This fund has grown to over $200,000 and this past academic year four scholarships were awarded to deserving students. Fantastic! We urge you not to forget our Class Bursary Project when contributing to the University.

Before dispersing there was an informal 'catch up' and shared information on many members who were not there.

Later in the day all returning members of 1950s received The Charles Frederick Allison pin at an impressive ceremony at Convocation Hall with Senator Catherine Callbeck & Board of Regent member Scott McCain presenting the pins. During the Alumni Banquet that evening our Class President, Ron, was recipient of the Charles Frederick Allison Alumni Recognition Award. Well done Ron!

The Campus looked amazing for all returning Alumni to see and be impressed in particular by the most recent addition, The Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts.

Sackville was good to us ....just a sprinkle of rain.
