The Class of ’62 gathered for their 50th reunion on May 1 – 3, 2012. The following report was sent along for the website.
At 10:00 am, May 1, 2012, 28 classmates from across Canada and the USA met in the rotunda of Sick Kids. Everyone received a name tag and a grad photo button. Two staff nurses organized us into two groups for a tour. We saw several areas in the hospital but one of the highlights was a visit to The Learning Institute which embraces all education endeavours including the Simulation Program where nurses can practice procedures and techniques without risk to the patients.
Luncheon was served in the University Avenue Rotunda. Elizabeth Uleryk, Director of Library Services and Archives, provided displays of graduate pins, uniforms, caps, capes, a very large copy of our class picture, antiques, and old documents. She also initiated a guessing game about an old piece of equipment from the 1940’s. Donations to the Archives are welcome. In September, Elizabeth was delighted to receive a hard copy and an electronic copy of our anecdote collection
A slightly different 28 class members went to The Briars for good food, delightful conversation, comfortable beds and a gentle program. Aquafit led by Jane Booth and Yoga led by Wendy Cook were great structured activities for classmates.
The game, “Guess who wrote this anecdote” promoted interesting conversation. After a story was read by Janet Saunders and the author was identified, that class mate had the floor. By the second evening, this game time had been renamed ‘Cocktails and Stories’.
Any other class wishing to use any of the same ideas for reunion activities may contact Pat Coulman, our class representative. Pat can refer you to the class mate responsible for each activity.
