Active and popular this year, Chris was chairman of the Centennial Committee and was a member of the Basketball Team, Ski Club and Chess Club. His activities are varied and include skiing, glob hunting, sailing, Young Life and general hell-raising. Planned for his future is enrollment at S.F.U. followed by gold digging, world travel and ski bumming!!

It would appear that I had such a good time in school, I never left!  32 years as a teacher and administrator in four school districts: Surrey for one year teaching street kids in a convent; North Vancouver for 17 years with a great array of experiences; Richmond for 9 and now my 5th as Superintendent of Schools for Vancouver!

I know. Say no more. And I want to say that the schools, and the people doing what they're doing in them, in this complicated city, are just plain remarkable. By the way, every person in this picture with me is a Vancouver Principal. Not quite the standard image we grew up with, eh what?

Apart from an early escapade in Australia, Vancouver has remained my home. Life has been good, and is becoming ever more precious. I hope it feels the same for you.

Assistant-Editor of the Pointer, Marianne's interests are tied up in art and human beings. She was one of several who appeared on "Know the Scene" for Point. Marianne would like to take up the study of humanities after a year of experience in travel.

I ‘done my time’ in various parts of the public sector (libraries and schools), but my husband and I are now semi-retired on a beautiful acreage near Oliver in the South Okanagan.  We have had the great fortune of having been able to raise our daughters in beautiful, natural settings and are now able to spend lots of time with our grandchildren, who are in the area, as well as with my elderly mother.

And just to keep busy, I am presently running a home-based business selling natural soaps, body- and baby-care products.

 

 

 

 

Liz Lake (Graham)

 

  

 

1968…

2008…

2008…  Will be attending Reunion.

President of London House this year, Liz was also a member of the Senior Choir. Her outside activities include sewing and singing lessons. After leaving Point she will take psychology at U.B.C. and then tour Europe after her first year.

I'm looking forward to the reunion…  But what an exercise -- summarizing the last 20 to 30 years in a few short paragraphs!  Even more challenging than the annual Christmas letter!

In 1993, I married Mike Graham and acquired a couple more kids.  The family is now comprised of Angus Graham, 33 in Vancouver; Flora Graham, 30 in London, England; Christina Harris, 30 and her wife Kathryn in Victoria; and Janna Harris, 27 in Vancouver.

Mike and I have been living in Victoria for the past 7 years.  When he retired from the Province newspaper in 1995, we started a B&B on Kits Point which we ran for 5 years while I was still working for the Vancouver School Board.  When I figured out that the mortgage payments were exactly what I was earning as a school psychologist, and that the real estate in Victoria was half the price, it didn't take an IQ test to start us packing! And the weather's better, too!  We moved over here and started Annabelle's Cottage -- another B&B which we also ran for 5 years.  Enough of that!  Now I spend my time doing stuff I love -- working in fabric arts, singing in the choir, walking the dog and collecting a wee pension.  My latest endeavour is to begin training as a lay chaplain for the Unitarian Church.  In a year, I'll

2008… Continued

be performing marriages, memorials and child dedications for members of the general public.  Life is good!.

A hard working student on the science program Joe spends most of his time working on those tough courses. This would seem reasonable as after grad Joe plans to go to U.B.C. to get his degree in medicine. In not so many years, "Dr. Leong"

After graduating from UBC, I was driven to try living outside of the lower-mainland, so my wife Maley and I ‘tried Kamloops for awhile’ – and the rest, as they say, is history – 35 years worth anyways!  And, surprise, surprise, four of our five Kamloops-raised ‘children’ are back in the big city…

The majority of my working-years have been self-employed as the owner/operator of a restaurant (23 years!) and then a ‘need for a slight change’ got me involved in then retail aspects of a computer store for about ten years.  During this time I was also a Director with the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and continue to serve (15 years!) as a Councilor with the City of Kamloops.

I have been able to devote a considerable amount of my professional and personal time in supporting initiatives of the local Chinese and Multicultural Societies which in turn has provided opportunities for considerable travel to China, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines as well as much of Canada!

Currently, as a founding member of the Western Canada Heritage Centre Association, I am very proud to be part of the team building the “Heroes of Confederation Chinese Heritage Railway Workers' Museum” in

2008…  Continued

conjunction with the ‘Kamloops Heritage Railway Museum’.  I am also actively helping the local Chinese Cultural Association and Chinese Freemasons work together to raise money for the China-Sichuan Earthquake Relief Fund.

For 3 years after graduation, Bob divided his time equally between studies at UBC and cab driving. Then he studied marketing technology at BCIT, and has been a Sales Rep. with Nabisco since 1980. In 1984 he married his wife Prapason, formerly of Thailand. They have a daughter age 2 1/2 and another child due in August. Last year Bob bit the bullet and moved out of Kits to Maple Ridge. His future plans centre around moving back!
