Thanks Susan- I would love to try and assist in get this going, but I sadly have no time to devote to it right now.  If there is a critical mass of folks who want to keep this moving along, then great!  We need to start the fundraising effort.  U of S is willing to assist- if you are willing to take this on, then I can pass along contacts and information....Sorry!

Hello Everyone, we need a party!!!   It is hard to believe that 2021 is our 30th year Reunion!!!  I decided to do my part and get us all together to celdebrate our Reunion.  Unfortunately with the restrictions that vary from each Province and State,  I believe a virtual reunion would be the best for now.  I have contacted sponsors  and my idea is that each one who would like to participate would receive a basket of food to prepare a meal  and of course a bottle of wine.  We will then meet and have supper together, drink some wine and catch up with everyone.  We can have this one night or two nights if it works better for the amount of people that would like to attend.  The only thing I would need from all of my great classmates is their current address to recieve the basket and if they would like to participate.  This is a great opportunity to touch base with each other during these crazy times.  I am thinking of  March/April for the virtual party!!   Zoom parties/conference seem to be the new thing!

Let me know your thoughts.

I am also hoping that  we can maybe get together at the Canwest Conference in Banff ( October) for a personal gathering if  the conventiion will be on but I am starting with a virtual reunion now.  

 Look forward to hear from you.

I would like a chance to check in with you guys. I'll keep monitoring the forum for details.  Let me know if there is something I can do to help with the planning.

What a fantastic idea!   Thank you Lisa!

It would be great to catch up with everyone!  Its been a while.

Happy to help if at all possible, and very happy to source my own grub and bevvies (freight to Sydney might be tricky).

it would be even better to catch up in person.  Wish I could visit.  Sadly travel from here is highly unliklely this calendar year - not complaining about our extreme public health measures by any means.

Thank you Lisa!

I like this idea too. I am not sure whether I can participate in the cooking part, as I am waiting for replacement parts for my oven, however I can definitely participate in the wine-drinking part!

Hi Lisa,

What a fab idea and thank you for taking the bull by its horns to organise it. I am happy supply own food (like Karrie don't think Defra would approve baskets of food and its a big ocean). Would be really great to catch up with as many as possible after what has been a crazy year for everyone.

Hello Classmates:  So good to hear from many of you.  Please contact any of our classmates that have not joined this site and get them on!!   I will be sending updates frequently and some great pictures that will bring a smile to your face!!  If anyone does not want their picture up, please let me know as I do not want to offend anyone.  The reunion will have Food!!! Just like in University if you wanted students to attend you needed to server free food.   The food with either be a cheese and cracker plater or a meal that needs to be made.    A botttle of wine will definitely be included!!!    Keep watching your emails.

Lisa Lomsnes (Lomsnes)

Hello All:  Plan is a platter of crackers and chees with one or TWO bottles of wine will be sent to you.  It might be tough to send the package to Iceland or  Australia but most of you should be able to have the package delivered.  Please send  your current address to me throught the message forum or privately.  If there is a large number of classemates that wish  to join we can have two nights!   The date would be end of March. 

 This is a great celebration so please contact any of the other classmates and invite them to join.  This will be a great time to celebrate 30 years!  

Stay tuned!!

Hey all, I just recently got in contact with Karen Klusty (Henkels) on FB. She would like to join in on this. How do I add her to the group or who can she contact to join?

Kay Thompson

Looking forward to checking in with everyone.  Thanks to Lisa for arranging this and for everyone stepping forward to join the event.  Possibly this will be a Covid positive as I feel we might have found it harder to meet in person than virtually.  


My contact info is as follows:

Hello Everyone:

To assist Lisa- please have any missing classmates go to the website and complete their profile.  I will approve these and then they should be able to message the group and have access to all features.  I think it might be easiest if everyone just updates their profile here as well with your current information and especially address.  I can then download the list and provide it to Lisa for her purposes...saves having everyone put their address in the chat forum.  Let me know if you need any assistance with the website at all.  Or would like other features or functions to be active.
