Class of September 1967

Forty-two classmates celebrated their 45th reunion by meeting at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria on May 8th 2012.

Several of our classmates eagerly arrived a day early to spend some time in Victoria and met for dinner at a local pub. The following day we were joined by the other classmates for tea and a time to visit with each other.  In the evening we had a lovely dinner in the hospitality room at the Empress, and more time to reconnect, share our stories, and show our pictures and to reminisce about our student days. The following morning some of us enjoyed a tour of the lovely hotel and learned more about its history. Of our 79 grads, 5 have passed on and were honored with a poster and time to remember them.

Of the forty-two present, 19 came from the Metro Vancouver area, 4 from  the Gulf Coast, 8 from  Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, 5 from other parts of B.C. , 2 from  Alberta, 1 from Ontario, 2 from Washington State and our farthest classmate came from Hawaii. Many thanks to Marilyn (Mc Vicar) Norman along with her team from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands for putting the reunion together.

Plans are underway for our 50th reunion which will be held in Vancouver in May 2017 with Pat (Morrice) Ross leading the team. Thank you Hessina Bekkering for submitting this.  + photo
