Engineering Class of '58 - 65th reunion
| 2001 Nanton Ave
65th Reunion Lunch: This is a milestone - sixty-five years after our graduation from UBC! To ensure we have room for a big turnout, we booked the Arbutus Club in Vancouver for a grand luncheon on Thursday, September 28, 2023. For this special occasion, bring your family to help you celebrate and catch up with your class mates. The format will be simpler this year - no need to pre-order your lunch. We will be served a deluxe buffet, with soup and a choice of sandwiches and dessert. Come early, enjoy your luncheon and classmates, and pose for a group photograph. The main change this year is that pre-payment of $50 per person will be required in order to cover the guarantees that we must give the Club. The next update will include a reservation form for you to complete and return with a cheque or by electronic deposit.
