It was a grand time on Saturday afternoon, June 10, 2017 at the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club, where more than 60 Acadia alumni and friends came together for our Annual Maritime Lobster Picnic in the City. Guests were treated to a seaside-cooked lobster with Caesar salad, summer greens, potato salad, soft buns, melted butter and dessert. There was also a rib eye steak option and a kids' menu to boot. Attendees were delighted to meet and welcome incoming President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Peter Ricketts, who attended the event with his wife Maryann and son Sean. Other special guests included Alumni Association representatives Tammy Walker (’92) and David Davidson (’81); Executive Director of Alumni Affairs, Ian Murray (’88); Executive Director of Philanthropy, Nancy Handrigan (’92); and Marketing and Development Manager, Athletics, Len Hawley. Thanks and appreciation go out to Suzanne Seaman (’97) and all of the tireless volunteers who make this gathering in the nation’s capital a much-anticipated event. Pictured (left to right) are: Jay Thomson (’80), Deborah (Jackson) Thomson (’81), Suzanne Seaman (’97), and Matthew (’91) and Elsa Lucas.
