Take a few minutes to watch this wonderful slide show put together by George Aitken for us. We had the pleasure of watching this during out Friday evening class dinner on October 17, 2014.
Our Science '59 Executive has reviewed all entries that were received in 2012 for our "Happy Memories " contest, and has decided that Don Haws is our unmistakable winner. Don's collage of many photographs taken during the 1955-1959 era was the entry that made us smile the most, chuckle at times, and even brought forth a few belly-laughs.
Don will receive an appropriate prize on the Friday evening of our upcoming 2014 Homecoming Reunion (our 55th). There were many excellent submissions to our contest, and Honourable Mentions must go to Ian Campbell (for his antics during his Saturday morning mineral dressing labs), and to Mike Whitney (for his summer adventures in Cobalt, Ontario). Many thanks to all who participated......and for those with more memories to share,.....keep 'em coming

Take a moment to remember classmates who have recently passed away.

In January, Peter Meincke, Sc'59, was among 60 outstanding Canadians whom Governor-General David Johnston, Law'66, LLD'91, presented with medals commemorating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. Read more in Issue 2, 2012 of the Alumni Review.
Our accommodations at the Marriott Residence Inn were first class, and we consider this hotel "a find" for our next reunion. Beautiful rooms, great service, and a complimentary breakfast that knocked our socks off. The food at Friday night's BBQ was excellent, too, and during that evening we unveiled our updated "giant cheque", to the gasps of awe from all classmates and their spouses.
Saturday night's banquet gave us all the opportunity to mingle with some of the Queen's staff with whom we work so closely, and to meet some of our award winners - delightful kids who all expressed their deep gratitude for our help in launching them at Queen's. Later in the evening , we heard some of Dean Kim Woodhouse's exciting plans for the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, along with some comical stories from Science '59ers and their escapades during those notorious 1955-1959 years.
We totally surprised Penny Bagnell (Queen's staffer who happens to like us alot, and generously contributes to our Science '59 Admission Award), by pronouncing her as our "official cheerleader". She blushed beet red as we presented her with her official cheerleader sweater, emblazoned with our Science '59 crest. She wore it proudly to work the next day.
Sunday's Town Hall Meeting was all business, where we unanimously agreed to expand our award to include not only students entering first year engineering, but to now include 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year students who maintain their marks, show leadership at school and in the community, while still requiring financial assistance.To provide some distinction to this change, we now call our award "The Science '59 Admission Award", and it will be displayed as such in all Queen's publications and calendars that are circulated to high schools.
Many, many thanks to all who made our mid-term reunion another romping success, especially those that traveled long distances (from Victoria and Calgary, for example).
