You're Invited!  Reunion Weekend - May 10-12

 

January 2019

2019 WOW! Hard to believe that 65 years have gone by since we were classmates at Mount A. So many memories! And so we look forward to May 10-12 and our 65th Reunion.

 

Bob, Ella, Doug "Stretch," have been planning our time together with the assistance and guidance of Eric Donovan, staff member responsible for reunions at our Alma Mater.

 

Our weekend will start with a reception on Friday afternoon at the home of Marilyn Trenholm Counsel, 42 York Street, Sackville. Marilyn is a gracious hostess and  provides a wonderful opportunity to meet and greet.  Saturday noon sees our class with guests, hosted over lunch by class mate, Margie (Norrie) McCain. Around these events we have booked the first floor of Campbell House. Wonder why the first floor ... could it have to do it with aging? Alumni Banquet for our class on Saturday will find us sharing in the banquet in Jennings Hall followed by having our dessert and more conversation in the mezzanine (Jennings Hall). Other events  are to be found in the brochure from Mount A.

 

Week end package, i.e. all inclusive, excluding Saturday noon, room and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday a.m., Welcome back dinner of Friday and Banquet on Saturday evening. Dessert on mezzanine.) Includes registration fee, GST. $280.55

 

As above without lobster --instead ham or vegetarian. Total coast includes registration, GST $256.15
  

Why dessert in the mezzanine? The Purdy Crawford Centre is a magnificent building and we encourage you to visit the same during our weekend, however, we feel that time together is more important than dessert in the Crawford Building which really doesn't allow for folk with mobility issues etc., coming at the end of a long day etc. You'll understand as we gather!


University Advancement, during our class meeting on Saturday a.m. will provide an update on the class of 1954 bursary.
  

Again, this year Stretch will prepare an In Memoriam presentation. Always a moving time, and held during our class meeting which takes place on Saturday at 10: 00. It is a time for memory. Copies of the presentation will be made in 2 different ways: 1) if you have a memory stick, (USB Memory stick), please bring  the same with  you and a copy will be made on site; 2) if you would like a DVD , again a few copies will be available following the presentation. Please feel free to send names of class mates who have died since our time at Mount A directly to dougjune@nb.sympatico.ca or telephone any member of the committee with the information. We work, from what we trust, is a very current listing from the Alumni office but do want to cover all bases.
  

Please contact the University to book rooms, meals etc by going to the web site or writing or contacting Mona Estabrooks at 506-364-2608; 1-866-890-6318 or Eric at 506-939-6103. We are confident that Eric and those who work with him will do an outstanding job in making our time together "worry free". Keep in mind that your spouse/partner/significant other is eligible to take part in our time together.
  

So again, place the dates in your day timer, on your calendar --wherever, as we continue to look toward a period of seeing one another and sharing memories . As we said on the occasion of our 60th, we can't promise lots of "sleep" but we can promise a great, great time.
