The class of 1963, 50-year graduates of the Aberdeen Hospital Alumnae Association, was honoured at an annual banquet in October. Thirty-one graduates of the nursing program were present having travelled from various places in Canada and the United States to attend. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the honorees of their gold cape and corsages. A large number of members attended the dinner that was held at Summer Street Industries. Life members in attendance included Ada (Patriquin) Collinson, class of 1946; Kay (Fraser) Jardine, class of 1945; Kathleen (Stewart) Simpson, class of 1936; Jean (Dunbar) Baudoux, class of 1947 and Faye (Bonvie) Hoare, class of 1957. A lovely dinner was served and all present enjoyed an evening of renewing old acquaintances and the sharing of many stories of the “Good Old Days at the Aberdeen”. Fond memories for so many.
