The 14th Annual General Meeting and Dinner with Special Tribute to the graduates of class of 1967 & 1977 to celebrate their respective 50th and 40th year after graduation
The above collage picture shows just some of the laughing faces captured during those happy moments in our last year’s annual dinner. The Executive Committee members have made the biggest effort to plan this year’s AGM and annual dinner. The highlight of the event will be:
1. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of, and pay tribute to our members who graduated in 1967. Likewise, tribute and celebration of their 40th anniversary will also be conducted for members graduated in 1977.
2. To commemorate the centenary birth date of our former school principal the late Mrs. Helen Wong. Her daughters Lorraine (our former music teacher and now living in UK) and Fiona (also a graduated schoolmate and now living in Calgary) will come and join with us.
3. The Executive Committee has decided to waive this year’s membership fee as a token of thanks to the support of members in the past years.
4. The current term of the Executive Committee has come to an end. Election of new committee member will be an agenda in the AGM. Please consider to help fostering a more energetic team to serve the alumni.
We are highly motivated to learn that alumni across Canada and the States have already planned to attend this coming event. Please do not hesitate to join with our fellow former teachers and schoolmates an evening full of funs and sharing.
