Our 50th Reunion was held on October 11th and 12th, 2017 in Toronto. With diligence and much searching, we managed to locate all but one of our classmates. We had 37 attending from near and far – Ontario, Alberta, BC and Florida. We stayed at the Chelsea Hotel for two nights. A cocktail reception was held in the hotel the evening of October 11th with many happy reunions, eulogies for our dearly departed classmates, a short entertainment song (to the tune of “Oh we’re from …. “), and plenty of delicious food. A big thank you to the organizers of this fantastic event – Nancy(Simpson), Fran(Wemp), Ann(Blair), Karon (Harbinson), Linda Sumner, Val(Rowan), and Cathy(Weir). Also many thanks to Barb(Bird) for the wonderful Nurse mugs, Fran for the Memory Books, Cathy for the gift bags, name tags, collecting photos and making a photo frame, and Anne(Sherman) and hubby for making the photo DVDs and taped 60’s music.
On October 12th we attended the hospital tour and luncheon hosted by Sick Kids. Thank you very much to the RN Council Chairs and other Sick Kids staff for welcoming us back. They said ours was the largest 50th luncheon ever! Also thanks to Dee(Schuster), Class Rep, for helping to arrange the luncheon and Jamie(Marg Jamieson) and hubby for arranging coverage on CTV news – click here!
On October 12th evening, Karon (Harbinson) and Ann (Blair) hosted a wonderful buffet dinner at Karon’s home – thanks so much Karon and Ann.
The two days went by much too quickly. We now have cherished memories of our time together – reconnecting with old friends, talking about the good and bad times, sharing laughter, tears, and goodbyes once again.
Till the next time ………
Dee Cavanagh, Class Rep
