Class of Sept 1968 45th Reunion

Sept’ 1968 celebrated their 45th reunion at the Inn at the Quay in New Westminster May 24, 25, 26 2013.

From the welcome desk in the lobby of the hotel and the welcome reception Friday afternoon to the goodbyes at the breakfast at the Boathouse on Sunday the fun and laughter never stopped.   The highlight was the Fraser River Boat trip on Saturday afternoon aboard a Paddle wheeler.   Although the weather was cool it didn’t rain and 34 classmates enjoyed the trip, many warmed by the special Fraser River Coffee!!  Saturday evening was a wonderful buffet dinner at the hotel overlooking the Fraser River which 45 classmates enjoyed.  In honor of the Royal City, we all donned homemade feather fascinators to make the evening special.  Classmates came from Oregon, California, Ontario, Alberta, the Island and the Interior.  There were a few who had never been to a reunion in the past 45 years which made this one very special.   The reunion committee made a wonderful booklet “Memories of the class of Sept 68” which is 19 pages of stories, comments and pictures of our training years and recent pictures of these amazing women. We are now looking forward to our 50th in 2018 which will come very quickly. We are planning a 2nd annual Christmas Lunch at North view Golf course in late November.

Submitted by the 45th reunion committee: Helen Chambers, Linda Clarke Frost, Susan Smith Harding, Cherry Pye Harriman
