ver the weekend of May 11 to 13, more Allisonians than ever before returned
to celebrate Reunion Weekend with us. More graduating students joined us
at the alumni banquet than ever before, and more still enjoyed the Barra
MacNeils in concert -- the premier alumni event of the weekend. I am always thrilled to
see classmates of the years talking and laughing together again, but even more moving are
the smiles and conversations between alumni and graduating students. The favour was
returned as alumni in record numbers danced the night away at the Garnet and Gold
Gala hosted by the graduating class. It is an unlikely connection across the years, made
possible only by our shared experiences.
At Convocation, I had the honour of welcoming graduating students to the alumni and
I urged them to take advantage of the common experiences that all Allisonians share.
I asked them to take a moment to laugh and chat with fellow alumni whenever and wher-
ever their paths crossed because it makes our community stronger. The same holds true
for you. Whether you left last year or many moons ago, the advice is the same: Seek out
Allisonians who cross your path, regardless of their age, and share your experiences.
I also have a favour to ask of you: Please let us know when you meet or hear about alumni
doing interesting things and making a difference. Each year at the alumni banquet we
honour alumni, young and old, who are making their mark in the world. We would like
nothing more than to have more stories to choose from, so won't you be our eyes and ears?
We'd love to hear from you!
