60-64 Alumni Reunion – Sept. 17-18, 2011

More than fifty people gathered in Pleasantville, NS for the 22nd annual get-together of the 1960-64 UBBTS Alumni group. For a few of them, it was the first reunion they had ever attended; but as the others re-connected and reminisced with them, the years that had passed since they last saw one another just seemed to melt away. On Saturday evening, people were given an opportunity to share what these reunions have meant to them, and a recurring theme was the sense of being a family that existed when they were at UBBTS, and which is still the case. In fact, one of the newcomers to the reunions commented at the end of that evening that you could just sense the love within the group.

A regular event each year is forming a choir and singing in the Sunday morning church service. This year, thanks to the efforts of Shirley Steeves and Hal Cormier, there was also a men’s quartet, a mixed quartet, a ladies’ ensemble, a men’s ensemble, and a soloist.   Some of the words of the song that the men’s quartet sang that weekend sum up quite well the value of these friendships which have endured the passage of 50 some years – “Old friends, what a find! What a priceless treasure!…Old friends, I’m a rich millionaire in old friends.” Join us next year at our next 1960-64 reunion to be held on Sept. 22-23, 2012!
