Reunion 2011 Update:
Thank you to everyone who recently attended our 45th Reunion. By all reports and feedback, everyone thought it was a great week-end. Twenty-five (25) of our alumni returned, plus 20 guests (see who attended below), some who came from as far away as Australia to be here. We spent the weekend eating, laughing, dancing and reconnecting. We missed those of you who weren't able to join us, so we thought we'd share some highlights of the weekend with you.
- As with the past 4 Reunions, the main Sc'66 activities were held at the Donald Gordon Centre (DGC) which has both an ideal location close to Richardson Stadium (you can walk to the game) and great food and accommodation.
- The weekend started Friday evening in the DGC Pub with drinks and snack foods, and John MacLatchy’s Sc'66 movie of years ’62 thru ’66 + the 2006 Reunion. Everyone in attendance got a DVD copy of John’s movies. John even showed up to be part of our Reunion.
- Dean Kim Woodhouse was unable to show up but sent a message that was read out in the Pub. You may be interested to know that Sc'66 Alumni have contributed $464,817 to Queen’s of which $189,878 has been directed to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
- At 9:30 AM Saturday, there was a tour for interested Alumni of the Queen’s Centre, Queen’s new $160M athletics and recreation complex and the new Multidiscipline Engineering Centre. We also viewed the “statue” at the back of the old Library which has been damaged. Lorn Newton, who built it in 1966, agreed to fix it and affix the bronze plaque that we had made.
- This campus tour was followed by a pre-game Saturday buffet lunch in the DGC dining room.
- We then walked to the stadium to watch Queen’s vs Western that went into overtime. At half time, Sc'66 and Sc' 81 walked around the track to the cheers of the students.
- Back at the DGC, we then had Saturday evening cocktail hour (cash bar) followed by a beautiful buffet dinner including Roast Beef. After dinner, we again returned to the Pub for music and dancing to Sc'66 Gronk music.
- Sunday morning brunch at the DGC finished the weekend, except to discuss the very important fact that the next Reunion 5 years from now will be our 50th. If you haven’t been to a Sc'66 Reunion lately, plan to attend our 50th. We’re hoping to have double our average attendance .

We look forward to reconnecting again for our 50th Reunion in 2016
