 Class Letter


 Dear Members of the Class of 1983,

May 2018 brings us to our 35th reunion. It is time to reminisce about our university days and reconnect with fellow classmates. I am sure we all still remember the afternoon beer gardens with Ryan’s Fancy, football and rugby games on the back campus, Winter Carnival with Bryan Adams, Junior Prom, residence parties and yes, the many hours spent at the library where some of us became very competent at hanging the rails. All these great memories and stories can be shared once again as we travel back to good old Sackville, N.B. on May 11-13th weekend.

Many events are planned for all of the reunion classes. Our class residence will be Thornton and we hope to have one of the lounges booked for the weekend so that it can be a meeting place. It will also be a place to grab a quick drink (or 2) before we head out to some of the planned events. Friday night features an East Coast Lobster dinner ( w/ham option) followed by a good old East Coast Kitchen Party featuring the band, Signal Hill. This looks like a great way to start the weekend. Our Saturday formally starts with the Alumni luncheon. Perhaps an afternoon wine/beer/ gathering can follow. Alternatively, a stroll around the campus and downtown might be the activity of choice…or at our age, maybe a nap is in order. The Alumni Banquet is Saturday night, followed by the Garnet and Gold Gala. The lounge at Thornton will also be available that evening for folks to chat, catch up and tell stories. Our hopes are that the musicians in the class will bring their some of their instruments and in true Maritime tradition, bust out a few songs of their own in a tribute to our classmate Art Drysdale. We know he would do just that!

Check out our Mount Allison Class of ’83 Facebook page as well as the Mount Allison website for the 2018 Reunion for events and details of the weekend.

If you know of classmates that don’t know about our reunion , please feel free to contact them and extend the invite. Let’s make this the best turn out yet!!

On behalf of the Life Class Officers : Deb (Gerrard) Shaw, Nan Hutchinson, Susan (MacLeod)Purchase, Cathy (Sobey) Miller , Anne Fizzard and Ian Hanomansingh

Hope to see you all in May.
