A Week of Celebration-Homecoming

September 12th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Home coming weekend is an annual event we look forward to. This year we have had  11 class reunions, 9 during home coming week. The sense of the excitement in the room, and a reconnection with colleagues was wonderful. Our president Dr. David Barnard spent the morning with us and brought greetings. Tours were arranged for those who had not seen the facilities for some time. As special thanks to our new alumni affairs coordinator Darcy Routledge and all the work that she has done on behalf of our alumni this year. The entire team including Ilana Simon, Barbara  Becker, Blair Nichols, Lisa Thompson, Rosanna Tillberg, Amelie Findlay and Janice Labossiere deserve special thanks as well for a great event.

We encourage you to use our Alumni Online Community, a password protected University of Manitoba website, similar to Face Book, that would allow you to keep in contact with your colleagues in a convenient way. To register go to : www.umanitoba.ca/medicine/olc.html

    Thank you for the wonderful alumni breakfast. I was thrilled to serve as a tour guide for the spirited class of 1984 who regaled us with stories of “Mary’s diner” now S211 and the “nap room” near the current S204. Neither of these places was on my tour guide notes! The group was fascinated by the simulation centre – and entertained watching their classmates perform – a dermatologist passing a laryngoscope, a psychiatrist passing a bronchoscope and a neonatologist delivering a baby! The volunteer students, staff and faculty were wonderful demonstrators and greatly appreciated by the group.
