Class reunions are a great opportunity to strengthen friendships, reconnect with class members, and encourage ongoing connections with Crofton House School - not to mention a great excuse to have a party!
Class of 1992
The class of 1992 was thrilled to celebrate our 20 year
reunion over a sunny June weekend this summer.
Thirty alumnae attended the event and many travelled to be in Vancouver, coming from Whistler, Edmonton, Toronto, Portland, Chicago, Texas, New York and Hong Kong.
The weekend long event, included a Friday night mixer with the St Georges Class of '92, a Cocktail Party, featuring the Millet Mojito, at the Vancouver Lawn and Tennis Club and a Family Picnic on Spanish Banks.
It was a fabulously fun weekend, many stories and laughs were shared.
Class of 1987
Members of the Class of '87 managed to carve out a Saturday evening in Yaletown to exchange stories and laugh…a lot.

Some brought pictures, Croftonians, class newsletters, even dance tickets, and there was a hearty exchange on what we thought happened versus what really happened.
Following drinks and dinner, some were even able to stay up past midnight to catch up with the Grad '87 Saints class at a good old fashioned house party.
Whether in Vancouver or around the globe, our girls are living and working with children and families, computers, investment and taxes, screenplays and publishers, legal systems, hotels, forest products, animals and much more.
It was wonderful to see those who could join us, and we missed those who couldn’t. Despite the different paths our lives are taking, the laughter was still the same.

Class of 1962
On May 23rd and 24th 2012 , under sunny skies, at Joanna Hutton's lake house at Whatcom Lake, Bellingham, the wonderful girls of '62 gathered for a sleepover to celebrate 50 years.
Back row: Marti Oppenheimer, Eleanor (Greene) Elliott, Ina (Bradley) Guse, Linda Williams, Kathy Krantz, Bunny (Madden) Vagg, Doreen Davidson, Jane Grafton, Gretchen Gahan.
Front row: Natalie (George) Erskine, Heather (Horner) Dalcourt, Georgia (Keate) Macadams, Jeanne (Hurford) Rohweder, Carol (Powlett) Pepper, Marsha (Wallace) Belanger, Barbara Burton, Joanna (Nerheim) Hutton.
The organizing committee of Georgia, Bunny, and Joanna worked tirelessly and happily to make this important event one to remember and were so appreciative of all the spontaneous offers of help.
Our reunion began with hugs and was sustained with laughter and stories through a welcome brunch, dinner, a marathon super scrabble game, and breakfast the following morning.
We surprised the girls with a very deluxe cake baked just for us by a famously talented baker from Bellingham. Over the years we have gathered for the 10th, 20th, 30th, and 40th CHS birthdays with such a significant percentage of our class attending each year.
As the reunion drew to a close , each girl was presented with a goody bag containing a copy of the formal grad photo, CHS mints, CHS paper pad and a beautiful chrome pen inscribed to mark the occasion, a gift from Jo and Dave Hutton. The following was written on the card to each girl:
"A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil, but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and some silly presents every so often .... just to save it from drying out completely."
We shared our special thanks to Peggy Macdonald Alumnae Relations for all her helpful guidance and patience during the planning stages.
Wishing each other peace, grace and wellness, we said our "goodbyes" knowing that the girls of '62 are a gift to us all.
