Vancouver Fish Company Restaurant and Bar was a fabulous venue thanks to Steve and Joanna Duyzer

 

Saturday Pre Banquet Social (at one end of the Banquet Room): Gathering and Bar were great with gifts of appreciation given out. VP Cowin attended which was fabulous!  We were lucky to have over 20 alumni attend the pre-banquet celebration at the Hotel Vancouver. Hosted by Nestor himself, it was a wonderful way to catch up with everyone and meet new faces.

 

 

The BANQUET: Outstanding evening – our third annual spring banquet was a night filled with glamour, laughter, and exciting celebration! Dr. Cowin’s presence and speech were well received – this was the first time we have ever had a Vice President at the Banquet, and it was exciting to see her reaction to the big family we call Intramurals.  We also celebrated Habib Zargarpour, this year’s Marilyn Pomfret Alumni Achievement Award winner, who has worked in the film industry for over a decade on movies including Twister and Star Wars.  Other highlights of the night included the various Student Staff awards, along with the Staff video, which included some archival footage from past generations. Overall, it was an exciting night and we hope to see you all there next year in April! Those attended included: Natacha Corrie, Alvin Lee, George Mapson, Jean and Keith Miller, Ronnie (Gill) Perkins, Lara (Evans) and Mauricio Garcia, Kris (Cholyk) and Steve Gustavson, Stephanie von Dehn, Habib Zargarpour, Marilyn and Jack Pomfret and Kavie and Lorraine (Pond) Toor.
