Class of August 1959

Class of Aug 1959- 4 day 5oth Reunion in Sept 2009.

It is 50yrs since the class of Aug’59 graduated from U.B.C.

The fun filled 4 day reunion began at Ann-Shirley (Gordon) and Rob Goodell’s lovely townhouse in Yaletown on Sept. 12th. We enjoyed the most delicious dinner with lots of wine. We have never been a class who didn’t enjoy a good party. The next morning 21 of us drove to Brew Creek Lodge 20 min south of Whistler. We were the only guests at the time which was so perfect. The accommodation was beautiful, in rustic, well appointed wooden buildings. We experienced gorgeous sunny fall weather, walks in the woods, bocce ball games, gourmet meals and special happy hours.  We sang one of our capping songs and Jo-Mary’s capping candle and doily were once again called into service. We returned to Vancouver on Sept. 15th and had one of our traditional picnics at Jericho Beach. Our happy time together ended at Ruth (Levirs) and Noel Boston’s amazing Point Grey home overlooking the water, mountains and city lights.
