Galt Retirement-reunion Gala
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.
