Class of 1973 – September – 50th

On Sept 13th, 2023 our VGH Class of Sept. 73 celebrated our 50th Anniversary.

On Sept 13th, 2023 our VGH Class of Sept. 73 celebrated our 50th Anniversary with 30 of our class members at my home in South Surrey B.C. We had classmates travel from New Zealand, California, Edmonton, Trail, Vancouver Island, the Interior and the lower mainland. It’s hard to believe it’s been 50 years since we all graduated to launch our nursing careers. Our Class valedictorian , Karyn Valleau Smith read out her speech from 50 years ago and we all realized how the wisdom of her words still applied to all of us today.  Within a short time gathering it was as if no time had elapsed since we graduated. We want to thank you for the generous gift of $500 towards our luncheon.
We celebrated with  great company, excellent food, Champagne and a VGH cake for
dessert and lots of laughs.

Denise MacMartin , Ann Price, Cara Penny & Barbara Coghlan & all of our classmates.

Gathering for breakfast the next day, the members completed quizzes, sang a revised Adjustment Song, opened Goody Bags, and heard Joan’s evaluation review complete with prizes. The Health Clinic was opened and several remedies were demonstrated before Ocean Potion was served to all.

Following Free Time to explore or relax, the group gathered near The Gazebo to hear and view Memories that some had never heard before.
