Hi Arts '67 members!
Our Year's reunion organizing group wants to let you all know that the 45th reunion was a successful one. Those of us able to attend all or some of the activities enjoyed themselves, and of course, it was fun to catch up with long-term friends. We want to tell you about the success of the weekend and also to begin to tell you of plans for our 50th in 2017.
Like the usual turnout for a mid-decade reunion, this one was small, with 22 people at lunch and 25 at dinner. However, our collective pleasure was that the small number enabled us all to speak to friends in the class in more detail, than we would with a large turn-out.
Lunch offered excellent food at the Donald Gordon Centre, and the most enjoyable features of dinner at the University Club were the very pleasant setting and John Latham's amazing Power Point of individual Class photos & memorable life highlights over 45 years. I encourage those of you who attended to email any photos from the weekend to Carey Morrison, in the Reunion’s Office (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will post those photos on our class web page for all to see.
Our group has agreed to consult annually until our 50th to begin planning our next and very significant reunion, taking place in 2017. We want to mention 2 things now:
• One clear and desirable goal is to learn the date of the reunion as soon as possible, so that we all may plan whether to participate. One clue about attendance is that besides the people who were there this time, a further 26 persons gave their regrets and confirmed that they will do their best to be at the 50th.
• The '60s was a unique decade, and also a symbol in many countries' history, and we are thinking about how to celebrate some features of that period that we enjoyed. There are documentaries of the '60s that could be memorable, and shown at our convenience; some of the music of the decade would be fun to hear, and some of us may want to display their dancing skills; and of course, John Latham's Power Point would display personal memories of ourselves and of Queen's. Please send us any thoughts or suggestions you might have.
One sad note that is informative for us all is to share the list compiled by the Alumni Office of those of our friends who have died during the 45 years since we were students at Queen's. The below is a list of our deceased friends and we would be pleased to be informed of any error in the list.
More optimistically, we have appreciated immensely Jake Blair's contribution of compiling a list of as many e-addresses in our class as possible, to enable easier communication among us. If you would like your contact information to be available to your classmates please share your e-address with Jake if you have not done so, or correct it, if you have changed your address recently. Alternatively, if you don’t want to appear on Jake’s list let him know this as well. Jake can be reached at email@example.com .
Lastly, we welcome any ideas about the 50th from you, if you want to share something. John Argue may be reached at the e-address or telephone number below.
Have a great holiday season,
John Argue, Reunion Co-ordinator
