We’re planning a party!


Suddenly, the 50th anniversary reunion and celebration for everyone who ever worked at G.P. Vanier in any capacity is less than a month away.

Any past and present employees of the school who haven’t already done so may now purchase tickets to the two October 20 reunion events from Teresa Dzuba at the Vanier office. Contact her by email at teresa.dzuba@sd71.bc.ca, phone her at 250 338-9262, or visit her at the office during school hours. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, or VISA, and Teresa will hold tickets until the event for people ordering from out-of-town. Spouses are welcome at both events.

On Saturday, Oct. 20 we’ll gather over refreshments at a meet-and-greet in the new multi-purpose theatre from 2 to 4:30 pm to reconnect and swap stories. Those who wish to may take a student-guided tour of the school’s $34M in renovations.

Then the celebration will move across Headquarters Road to the Comox Valley Curling Club from 4:30 to 9 pm for “substantial appetizers” catered by Plates, a no-host bar, music, and more reminiscing about what went on during our remarkable school’s first 50 years. The cost is $5 for the afternoon get-together, and $25 for the evening event.

Anyone wishing more information may email Olive Scott at olivescott67@yahoo.com.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone on Oct. 20!

All the best,
The Organizing Committee: Donna Bennett, Charlene Berg, Tim Krutzmann, Gayle Laurie, Hugh Mackinnon, Tim McKinnon, Brent Reid, Alison Rimmer, Butch Rivers, Olive Scott, and Dave White.
