45 Year Reunion Announcement!
Burnaby Mountain Golf Course
2016 - 6:30 pm
We have booked the Burnaby Mtn. Golf Course banquet room for our 45th Reunion, Saturday September 24, 2016, 630-midnight. In the past we have had a “big” reunion every 10 years, but as we get a little longer in the tooth, it seems appropriate to have one every 5 years. Initially we would like to offer tickets to those in our graduating class, (and friends/spouses) then extend the invitation to other years after we see how ticket sales go. Last time we sold 202 tickets, which put the room at capacity.
There are now 2 options for tickets. Please mail a cheque or money order payable to "Burnaby North Class of 1971 Reunion" to Bev Pearson,319 Mt Royal Place Port Moody V3H1K2 Please include a self addressed stamped envelope. Tickets are $32 before July 15, $37 after. Or you may do an interac email transfer (free, safe, easy) Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need help.

Interesting website. Clicking on the links to, and thinking about, people that I have not thought about in years is strange and nostalgic. has it really been 40 years? Missed the 10 year, had tickets to the 20 year but had to be out of town with work so I missed that one and didn't make the 30 year.Hopefully I can make it to the 40th.
I left Burnaby in 1971 and joined up with some counter culture types and the next few years were wild but a bit of a blur. I went to work for BC Hydro in 1975 and worked there until 1985. While there, I did 3 years at BCIT and then wrote the Real Estate exam in 1981. Meanwhile the real estate market had crashed so I stayed at Hydro and did 4 years at UBC in Urban Land Economics graduating in 1985. I joined NRS Block Brothers Realty in 1986 and have been a Realtor ever since. In 1991 I purchased the Coldwell Banker Office on Kingsway and now my two partners and I have 2 Real Estate offices, one on Kingsway and one on Hastings.
I have been married and divorced twice (engaged again, hope springs eternal) and have 3 children, Ashley who is entering 4th year UBC, James who is going into grade 10 at Burnaby North and Trevor who is going into grade 8 at Burnaby North.
It feels weird to walk the halls of Burnaby
North again but fun, (I still try to avoid the principal's office). I also coached baseball with my sons and it was strange to coach a game at Sperling Elementary and stand at the plate where I used to play as a kid. Likewise going to Cliff United practices on the fields by the old Kensington gym and remembering seeing Burton Cummings and the Guess Who playing a dance there.
