Vancouver Lunch - Nov 29, 2013

Vancouver Lunch Group

Good time, lots of memorable stories! From Left to Right: Ben Green (GAP '93-'94), Eric Corcoran ('98-'07), Derek Denton ('58-60'), Andrew Irving ('82-86'), Chris Westwick ('85-'86), Tyler Davis (early 90's) and Peter Webster ('5?-'57). Steamworks, on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver, was a great location. We want to keep it going! The group looks forward to another lunch in the spring - details to come.

For anyone interested in skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing, we also talked about taking advantage of the three local mountains, Cypress, Grouse and Seymour. Some of us have annual passes and ski on Grouse regularly, on weekends and the occasional weeknight. BTW - for all you eastern types, Grouse, 15-20 minutes from downtown, received over 10 metres of cumulative snowfall last year - for you imperial types, that's over 30 feet! Not bad for a "small" mountain, eh? If you are interested in hitting the slopes, please contact Andrew Irving.

The Halifax Old Sedberghian pub lunch on Saturday, November 23rd got together Old Sedberghians (L-R), from the 50s, Bob Angus and Stephen Beaufoy, from the 60s, Bill Barker, from the 70s, John Mahtab and from the 90s, Kirsten Robertson. The word has it that although their ages were somewhat different, the common thread of the school brought everyone together for two hours of conversation, laughter and nostalgia.

Thanks to Bob and Kirsten for bringing them together.

Thanksgiving Message - Oct 24, 2013

I have been away - hence the silence!

The Sedbergh spirit is certainly alive and well. Here's some news.

Will you be in Halifax on November 23rd or in Hong Kong on November 15th? How about in Ottawa on November 5th or in Montreal on November 7th? There are Old Sedberghian gatherings on those dates and in those cities. If you will be in any of these places why not join the fun. (see below)

Will you be in the Montebello area this month or next? The new village hall for Notre Dame de Bon Secours is almost finished and the 'Salle Sedbergh' already sports its outside cladding. The building will be ready in November and we are planning what memorabilia to install.
