Stanstead Journal - - JEN'S LENN - Len­noxville

On June 11th the Galt Re­tire­ment, Re­union Gala took place at the “Gait” at Bishop’s Univer­sity. Staff from the Alexan­der Galt Re­gional High School, the East­ern Town­ships Learn­ing Cen­tre and the Len­noxville Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tre at­tended and the evening was spent vis­it­ing with col­leagues from the past and present.

The evening was a huge suc­cess and all in at­ten­dance had lots of time to rem­i­nisce of days gone by. Eleven staff mem­bers who re­tired in the past few years were hon­oured and Mrs. Joan Thom­son who turned 100 this past spring was a spe­cial guest of hon­our. She was rec­og­nized for all of the years she spent or­ga­niz­ing ac­com­mo­da­tions and giv­ing her end­less sup­port to the North Shore stu­dents who at­tended Galt dur­ing their high school years.

Mr. Bob Hal­sall and Dr. John Ber­tram did an ex­cel­lent job as mas­ters of cer­e­mony and Mr. Tom Matthews gave an in­spir­ing speech to all in at­ten­dance. Fol­low­ing the din­ner and pre­sen­ta­tions the KGB Band al­lowed ev­ery­one to kick up their heels and dance to the old time tunes.

The eleven staff mem­bers who were hon­ored that re­tired in the past few years seen here, en­joy­ing the evening. Left to right: Bar­bara Heath, Doug New­man, Diane Fraser Keet, Ian Breck, John Ch­es­ney, Kathy Breck, Linda Hill, Steve Ri­vard, Yvette Wil­liams, Luc Bel­humeur, Les­ley Con­nor
