Class of 1982 - 35th Class Reunion

The class of ’82 invites all its members to gather in Sackville, NB on May 12-14, 2017 to celebrate our 35th anniversary. For those of you far away, Sackville has changed a little or a lot, depending on your point of view. Mel’s is still the tearoom, and the chapel steeple still looks like it could use a chair on the top of it! However, there are a lot of new things to see! Trueman House is now the McCain Student Centre, the football field is now a real stadium with artificial turf and stands with seats, and the final keeping of what was a new promise when we were students — the Motyer-Fancy Theatre in the Purdy Crawford Centre for the Arts.

The executive of the Class of ’81 put it much more poetically than we could:

“On this, our 35th anniversary of graduation from Mount A, we hope that you will take the time to come back. Another truism which marks the passage of time, sadly, is that we have too many regrets, too much wishing we had done, gone, said – whatever it is, we might lose the chance to do. So please, if you can, mark the weekend in your calendar, and journey back to Mount A —  and maybe just for a bit, back in time. If you have been back for past reunions, we guarantee one thing; as Woody Allen says, “80% of having fun is about showing up.” We’re looking forward to seeing you.”  
We have reserved a lounge for our very own Class of 1982 gathering for the Friday night —  a classic “smoker” without the smoke in this day and age (BYOB). The big event on Friday night is the East Coast Kitchen Party with the Barra MacNeil’s at Jennings — newly renovated, yet again! A class meeting on Saturday morning (late in the morning), class picture, lunch, and dinner round out the day!

We ask you to bring any memorabilia that you may have. Wear your Windsor Wonder shirt, drink from your Winter Carnival beer glass, bring a cd of vintage music, which we will play in accompaniment to the caps games (if you happen to have a vintage collection of caps, you could bring those too!) Bring some of your favourite photos from 1978-1982 and we will post them, then collectively decide who has changed the most and the least in 35 years (that could be an ouch!)

If you haven’t already done so, please mark May 12-14, 2017 on your calendar and plan to join your classmates back at Mount Allison. Learn more about the reunion here: Book your airline tickets, get ready for a short or a long drive, but do not miss this weekend! Make the time to have a great time! When are you ever going to get the chance to celebrate being 35 again?

On behalf of your organizing committee,
