Dear Bev and David,
I was delighted to see you were both registered. I will get my registration form in soon. I would love to get a bunch of us together who all hung out together while we were at Fisher. I have written to Michael Norman and will call Sally Baycroft. I would be happy to host a group at our place on Saturday evening for dinner. We live in Westboro, so it's not far from the school. Please give me a call at 613-421-9146

Helen!!! How wonderful it is to see your name here! I saw Richard's name but not yours and was so hoping that you would be coming as well. I will email or phone Beverley ("call me Bev") Dowd and suggest a meeting somewhere/sometime. They (Bev and her partner Johan) don't get into Ottawa until Saturday around 4pm and will be staying with us downtown. I'll give you a call once I've heard from her. My number, by the way, is 569-6444.
Your life and work in Toronto sound very interesting and I do hope you are enjoying your new life back in Ottawa as much. Looking forward to seeing you, one way or another, next weekend. xoDavid

Good to hear from you, and glad you are in touch with Bev. I just read the full set of comments on the band/choir thread (only just figured out that there were multiple pages you had to scroll to!) So I just fouind out about the party at Mark and Annabelle's on Saturday evening. Perhaps we should meet there in the late afternoon on Saturday to join in that fun. I would also be delighted to have anyone over here at any time during the weekend. We could do brunch on Sunday if you like.
Also nice to know you live in Ottawa. Looking forward to drooling over your place in Mexico.
Let's try to get in touch by phone. I am still trying to reach Sally. I think she knows how to reach Charlie Donnelly and Judy Hiscocks.

Hello, dear Helen. I will call you tomorrow (Tuesday). We've been out landscaping (yes, just another hat I wear!) all day and am too tuckered to talk this evening. Bev has told me that she and Johan won't be here until 4pm at the earliest on Saturday, and we all want to go to the dance on Sat. night, so the party at Mark and Annabelle's is out for us, sadly. We were thinking drinks with you in the afternoon on Sunday, as they are having lunch with B's aunt that day. Anyhow, I will phone you Tuesday. xoDavid by the way -- where in Westboro do you live? Michael's shop is in Westboro, on Richmond Road (I won't put the name of the shop, for fear of being deleted by the excellent police force on the forum!!). I've probably walked by your house a hundred times!

Sorry not to reply. I was out of town Mon-Wed. Got back too late to call you. Tom must have picked up the message because he said it would be better to call you during the day. I will try to call you tomorrow (Thursday). Or you can call me. I will be in all day Thursday.

Hello David and Helen, I have read your correspondence and note that you are looking for Judi Hiscocks (I think that is who you meant??), anyway she is Judi Webb now and she and her husband are going to the dance Sat and Judi will be at the registration Friday night. I know Charlie is living in the west end, but have not seen his name for the reunion. However, Judi knows his phone # I think. I think Sally B is still out of town...

Thanks for your message. I have spoken with Sally Baycroft, and she is planning to come to the reunion. I believe she will be going to the dance on Saturday night. She knows how to contact Judy Hiscocks and Charlie Donnelly and said she would try to reach them to encourage them to come too.

Helen: I have arranged to borrow some lawn chairs from neighbours but if you have some that you can easily throw in your car please feel free to bring them (let's all hope that the weather is pleasant). Any and all food contributions are welcome, thanks to all who have offered and been in touch. Nobody will go home hungry! Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday, please let me know if anyone needs directions to our place.
