Summer Reunion 2018 on the beautiful Acadia campus in Wolfville, Nova Scotia was a hit!
About 150 alumni and friends returned July 6th-8th as the University welcomed back the Classes of 1943, 1948, 1953, 1958, 1963, 1968, 1973 and 1978 as well as other alumni. Special guests included Acadia President Dr. Peter Ricketts and newly appointed Chancellor Bruce Galloway (’68) who also participated in a question and answer period with our alumni.
Guests enjoyed a full slate of activities that included a tour of the newly renovated Science Complex, a meet-and-greet reception and a banquet at the Sheldon L. Fountain Learning Commons, class meetings, a special Class of 1968 50th Anniversary Pinning Ceremony, and Sunday Service in the Manning Memorial Chapel. On Saturday, the Class of 1978 hosted a Jam at the Axe Lounge with musicians Jack Graham (’78) and Al Bennett (’78). On Sunday, David Parker (’84), Jennifer King (’91), and Paula Rockwell (’87) performed in the Garden Room at the K. C. Irving Environmental Science Centre.
The Reunion Cup winner was the Class of 1948 while Carol (Melanson) Holowachuk (’78) was the first person to register. The come-from-furthest away award went to Joyce Archibald (’68) who travelled 18,550 km from Bassendean, Australia and close behind was Don Ross (’78) who travelled 16,750 km from North Sydney, Australia. This year, the Acadia Alumni Association re-established The Isaac Chipman Award for Excellence in Alumni Service; congratulations to recipient Beverley (Trites) Richardson (’60).
Our thanks to all the alumni and friends who made the 2018 Summer Reunion so memorable!
