A Message from Cathy (Fraser) Hunt '81
Greetings from the Alumnae Association Executive. As I prepare mentally for my daughter's "Fetch '15" graduation from CHS in a few short days, I'm reminded of how quickly time passes and of my own graduation back in 1981. It's been a terrific year for the graduates and a busy one for the Alumnae Association.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the CHS Alumnae Association. Together with the school, we kicked off the year with an Alum Mum's Breakfast. We have over 30 alumnae with daughters at Crofton. We also had a great opportunity, early in the school year, to introduce the association to the Junior School and Early Childhood Education Centre by presenting the new girls with CHS pins. So cute! This year's Seasonal Social at the Wall Centre, held just before and across the street from the beloved Carol Service, was well attended by alumnae from all generations, with a great showing from the class of 2014.
February's 5th Annual Inspiring Women Event was hosted once again by CBC Radio's Rick Cluff, who moderated an incredible round table discussion with three of our brightest and most accomplished alumnae. This year's Alumnae Achievement Award was presented to Prudence Emery ‘54 at the school's 117th birthday and Alumnae Association's AGM/Luncheon in March. Prudence is an accomplished filmmaker and publicist and managed to bring the house down in the school assembly, another great moment connecting the alumnae with the girls. We wrapped up the school year by hosting the annual Mother-Daughter Tea, an opportunity to welcome the class of 2015 into the fold.
This year was also a time of transitions. We bid a fond farewell to Janet Hammond ‘67 at end of this month after 15 years of managing the CHS Alumnae Association Uniform Shop. Janet will be missed and we wish her all the best in her future adventures and travels. Lishe O'Kiely ‘75 will take over as manager and spearhead the move of the Uniform Shop into the new Crofton Hall this summer.
For anyone who would like to get involved with the Alumnae Association, we meet every second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. in the Old Residence. Everyone is welcome and we'll start up our meetings again in September.
Cathy (Fraser) Hunt ‘81
President, CHS Alumnae Association
