Volunteer Testimonials

The best part of organizing any event is a good response to the event you organize. We had that and it ended up
being a wonderful evening! Reconnecting with classmates after 30 years and feeling right at home with them was an awesome experience.


Connecting with my classmates and catching up on what has been happening in our personal lives was what I enjoyed most about volunteering as a Reunion class representative.


As a Reunion Class Rep, I really enjoyed touching base with old acquaintances that I hadn't spoken with in a long time.


When I volunteered as a Class Rep for Reunion, I enjoyed getting back in touch with former classmates, hearing their stories, and remembering some forgotten shared times.


My favourite part of volunteering in planning my reunion was connecting with classmates. We exchanged viewpoints and ideas about family, work and retirement! After catching up, we planned future activities with smaller groups.
