Okanagan Alumni Branch Launch Ceremony

In the weeks leading up to the completion of his second term as president George Ivany has been visiting U of S alumni branches around the world - from Toronto to Hong Kong. In early April he joined about 50 alum who gathered at the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna. Ivany reviewed the success of the First & Best capital campaign and the importance of alumni to the long term future of the campus. He also noted a few of the University's achievements, challenging claims by a certain national magazine that Huskieville is anything but a first-rate institution. The evening also featured a lively social element. Here he poses with the Hamilton family (l to r) - Heidi, BComm'96, Brent, Gavin, former dean of the Vet school and the branch contact James Paterson LLB'95.


Attention, Civils Class of '69, thirtieth reunion, Fairmont Hot Springs, September 9-12, 1999.

'69 engineers plan reunion at Fairmont - One thing led to another.

It started when the Civil Engineers class of 1969 returned to Saskatoon for their 20th anniversary in 1989. They did the usual things - toured classrooms, spent time in Saskatoon and checked for receding hairlines. Five years later it was time for a 25th anniversary of the day this group was unleashed on an unsuspecting world and a new venue was in order.

A quick geographic assessment (one a civil engineer, always a civil engineer) indicated the most central gathering place for this widely dispersed class would be Fairmont Hot Springs in B.C. And so began a new tradition.

There were no classrooms to tour here. Instead it was golf, white water rafting, fine dining and lots of visiting. The event was such a hit, the class decided to return "same time next year" and the ritual of an annual fall reunion of the Civils Class of '69 began. "That brings us to this, the grand thirtieth year of our illustrious engineering careers. The plan is to stay with a winner and hold a gala 30th reunion, as has become our fashion, in Fairmont Hot Springs, from September 9 to 12, 1999," reports organizer L.H. Wiens (BE'69) of Regina.

The group expects more golf, white water rafting, dining, soaking in pools and visiting will again dominate the agenda.

"So the call goes out to all members of the U of S, Civils, class of '69. Plan to come to the beautiful Columbia River Valley in September and once again enjoy the camaraderie of your classmates.

1968 Bachelor of Science in Home Economics Reunion:

If we haven't seen each other for 30 years, will we recognize each other? That may well have been one of the questions that Home Economics graduates from the class of '68 asked themselves as they made their way to the Bessborough Hotel, Saskatoon, for their reunion July 24-25, 1998.

Those present need not have wondered. Just to make identifications easier someone included photos from the 1968 yearbook on the name tags. "Besides, nobody has changed much", was the consensus.

The group enjoyed a full weekend of events. Thanks to Judy Stevenson and Marlene Loraas, both residents of Saskatoon, the reunion was a huge success. Seventeen of a possible 26 classmates attended, and each one left for home enthusiastic about getting together again in another 10 years!

Those in attendance were: Darlene Braun (Michalenko), Marian Campbell (Watt), Joan Clement (Dickin), Darlene Daley (Fertuck), Jean Heie (Berry), Brenda Hennig (Propp), Sheila Lavender (Oliver/Clark), Elaine Lemieux (Welsh), Marlene Loraas (Bursaw), Donna Newman (Dreger), Sharon Oliver-Murthy, Bev Pain, Valerie Price (Waldner), Judy Stevenson (Morstad/Sakundiak), Lucille Saum (Aitken), Patricia Sawatzky (Nordin), Lois Schultz (Brydges), Sharon Stredwick (Doyle).


The U of S College of Pharmacy and Nutrition will host an All-Years College Reunion in 2000;

A very special feature will be a joint celebration with alumni of the College of Home Economics and will coincide with the Alumni Association Annual Reunion the third weekend in June 2000.

At the same time, Saskatoon will also be hosting theAnnual Conference of the Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) and Saskatchewan Pharmaceutical Association (SPhA). This will be one of the larger conferences planned for Saskatoon in the year 2000.

The City of Saskatoon has recognized the U of S Reunion 2000 as one of the top 10 Very Important Reunions (VIRs) for the year 2000, which will offer:

* major celebration of the beginning of a new millennium and an opportunity to highlight the significance of our practices and changing professions.

* reduced travel costs by attending several major events at one time;

* the involvement of families, as the reunion takes place after the school year;

* Saskatoon's variety of economic accommodation and excellent venues for dining, entertainment and hosting of plenary meetings;

* ample time for other stakeholders and associations to facilitate their individual programs and coordinate social functions;

* an opportunity for alumni to renew acquaintances with other college and univeristy alumni.

We look forward to being a part of your return to our province, city and university. Plan now to join us in Saskatoon, June 23 to 26, 2000.
