Lorraine (Cameron) Silliphant ('61)
of
Fredericton, NB was awarded the Pio-
neer of Human Rights Award by the New
Brunswick Human Rights Commission for
her work in advancing the human rights
and full inclusion of people who have an
intellectual disability. The pioneer award
recognizes individuals who have made a
significant contribution to human rights in
New Brunswick. Lorraine was also awarded
the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal for
her leadership and dedication to improv-
ing the lives of people with an intellectual
disability and their families throughout
Canada and advancing the inclusion of all
citizens as valued members.
Mary McCutcheon ('63)
, president of the
Park Extension Historical Society, was
surprised to learn that a student who con-
tacted their web page, prior to coming to
Montreal on fall study weekend, was in
fact from Mount Allison. This led to
Alex-
andra Ross ('13)
,
Ryan Mitchell ('14)
, and
their guide Dr. Tim Reiffenstein, attending
the Society's annual Awards Night and
Indian buffet for an unscheduled local his-
tory experience on Oct. 28. Tim bought a
cross-cultural (India-Quebec) memoir by
the guest speaker (Merrily Weisbord) and
Mary told them a little of life at Mount A
before they set off back to Sackville.
Sweet little Sackville
on the marsh.
Music, interesting
people, conversation,
little shops with nice stuff,
good food, and a feeling
everything's going to be okay.
Bring us your boredom,
we'll trash it for free.
