Sorry, but we wil be unable to make this event as we are travelling around Europe while we still can. Hope everyone has a great time visiting old friends and reminiscing about the days and experiences of the past. Would have been great to see so many familiar faces, and hopefully it may still happen again.

It's a month before the last and final Reunion please if you're planning on coming Donna needs your assistance in who's coming and who's not. During the past 2 weeks has been chaos with the flooding in Calgary but Hell or High Water apply's to our last Reunion to make it more special so please contact Donna ASAP and if your know other people from the Class of 72 please also let them know ASAP so we can reach our quota of 100 people cause Donna NEEDS your help. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.Jimmy

Hey all it\'s about 2 years till we all congregate to celebrate our 40th reunion lets all keep in touch and help our Donna and crew organize and find missing people on the listings. i know its and tall order but keep your eyes and ears peeled in case you can solve who and where these Mate\'s are. Would be nice to have more faces that haven\'t attended previous reunions. Hope everyone is enjoying life and wish you a great summer! Jimmy

Wow, what a blast from the past! Lots of familiar names and lots still missing.  Oh, let\'s see, fondest memory?  Watching the summit series in the library and Zdenek cheering (the only one) for Russia.  What a hoot.  So nice to see the pics.  Thanks for this!  ;-)

This is the first time I have accessed this website and It is great. 
Have had the opportunity to attend all of the reunions held and they are just like we are - they just get better with age. 
Many thanks to Donna Ludwig and all the others who have helped to put in all the effort to keep these going over the years. 
Looking forward to the 40th.

Just checking out the web site
 Thanks Donna and team for all you work, and for the supporters of the website.
  Wish I could have taken pics but broke my camera on the way to the reunion on the
C train when the automatic doors crushed my purse, and yes, my camera was in there... Have replaced that and will be ready for the 2013, our 4oth reunion.... meanwhile, hope everyone has a great life.

Hey everybody,
We couldn't make it to the reunion as it was also Gord's Dad's wedding day (go figure).  Anyway, Deb has filled me in with some news and we are really sorry we missed all the fun.  Bring on 40!!!!!

I  am sorry that I didnt see about the reunion sooner.  I loved Lord Beaverbrook and wish sometimes that I could go back in time just to remember.  I remember Debbie Sparrow and Sandy Keith  and wonder how they are doing/  Anyway life has been very good to me and I hope to all of you.  If you want to get in touch with me that would be great.  Pam McClelland  (Rowan)

Sorry I could not be there for this. The attendance list shows so many friends! Amazing how we all say the things our parents did about how time flies and we used to think they were ancient and knew nothing, didn't we? BUT stay stay young at heart. Create new adventures, live in each moment and celebrate it. That way we can all hook up and look like we did in high school!  YEAH RIGHT!!! We try to at least
:.) :.) :.) Best to everyone.  Jim Nashman

I had the most wonderful time at the reunion.  It was great seeing everyone again and am looking forward to the next.
A big thank-you to the reunion committee for all the time and effort that must have gone into the planning of such an event.
And thank-you Donna for I'm sure that you were the catalyst that made sure this happened.

The re-union was great and somehow it seemed to mean so much more this time around.  Hmmm! maybe I'm getting sentimental in my old age.  Thank you Donna and everyone else that helped to organize this event.  Also many thanks to all people that contributed to eliminating the deficit as well as supporting this website.  I had a wonderful time and hope to see everyone at the 40th.

Sounds like a good time was had by all. Wish I was able to attend the reunion. It's kind of hard to go back to Calgary when one is living in Texas, but I shall make every effort to attend the 40th. Gulp... did I just say that? Yikes!

Miss all my old buds from up there. See you next time for sure!

Thanks for all your hard work Donna!

Well, I am sorry I missed the reunion as I hear it was a great time. Denise Lalonde filled me in, in all that she could remember... was it age that gave her that challenge! Hmmmm. I was able to have a good visit with Brenda and Denise Saturday morning,reminiscing about our escapades in our younger days which then led us to remember many of you. Hopefully, I will be able to make it to the 40th but it will be my youngest 30th birthday that day. Wow, that makes me think of my age!

Well, the festivities are over for another 5 years and this was the first year that I was unable to attend.  I sure hope that you guys partied for us absentee graduates!

Please, please post some pictures so we can "pretend" we were there and start making plans for the 40th.  As was mentioned in a previous post, in 5 years most of us will be closing in on 60 and making plans for retirement ... just like our parents were probably doing when we were graduating!

Thank you Donna for arranging ALL the reunions.  You and your volunteers have made it easy for us to keep in touch while you do all the hard work!

See you in 5 years at the 40th!

I reaaly enjoyed seeing everyone at the reunion and thank everyone who helped out Donna with the shortfall, she really appreciates all the help and support and I'm excited to have our own site to which we all have the opportunity to stay in touch.
We really should try to keep the memories flowing as the years are passing by so quickly. Thanks to all who attended and thanks to all who contributed to keeping class of 73 Alive.

The reunion was great! My first one. Had too many excuses for missing previous ones, mainly because I had been in a fog selling and using drugs in the Pit much of my high school career and was feeling sheepish about revisiting that past. I apologize to those who may have been harmed in any way. Things have certainly changed since then. It was good to revisit so many of you! All the best in the coming years. Thanks to Donna Ludwig and team for all their efforts in making this happen!

Sorry I won't be able to join the festivities.  Let's start arranging our schedules for the 40th - we'll all be approaching 60 by then, hmmmmm . . .
Looking forward to utilizing our website in the meantime.
Many thanks to Donna et al for their countless hours of work on this!

What's all this nonsense about 35 years? You're only as old as you feel! Lately I've been working diligently soliciting door prizes for the big event. Some of them thus far are:
1) a one year supply of Lipitor
2) bags of assorted goodies with fun stuff like; Exlax, Preparation H, Metamucil, etc.
3) gift certificates to Lenscrafters

now if I could just remember where I put all that stuff....

Thanks for pulling this together Donna. And thanks to Robin Danby for letting me know about it. Haven't been to Calgary in 3 years. Way overdue and this gave me the motivation! Can't believe it's been 35 years. When did we get old?

We're so far along in our lifes that its hard to even think of re-connecting based upon what we were in our youth.  I suspect we are such different people now with 35 more years of life defining experiences.  This could be interesting.  Ironically, I married a Beaverbrook grad and both my kids went to RT Alderman and Beaverbrook just like me.

It is hard to believe it`s been 35 years. We can`t be that old yet! 29 yrs with a few yrs experience is my motto. Looking forwarding to seeing everyone again and catching up. Donna, thanks for all your hard work on getting this reunion happening again.
