Homecoming 2017 was held in honour of the classes of ’52, ’57, ’62, ’67, ’72, ’77, ’82, ’87, ’92, ’97, ’02, ’07, ’12 and ’16, and was attended by 250 alumni, travelling from as far away as Australia, Israel, Switzerland and England. It was an amazing weekend of events that included a grand reception, president’s welcome home BBQ, Governor’s club luncheon and the anniversary class luncheon.
This year saw the reintroduction of a sit down dinner which was very well received by our guests – this final event of the weekend also included a reception, silent auction, dj and dancing and a CMCC trivia quiz which the classes clearly enjoyed. The silent auction featured paintings by a variety of artist, donated by Dr. David Drum, Class of ’67. Dr. Drum also donated one of his own paintings to Dr. Wickes on behalf of the Class of ’67, the 50th anniversary class which was honoured with a tribute video, the 19th video in a series that began with the class of ’49. The Class of ’67 was also the winner of the Homecoming Backs in Motion Class Challenge for raising over $4,000 this year.
All participants enjoyed tours of the campus which included the Anatomage Table and the Microgate technologies in the Human Performance Lab, both new this year. The CE program included two internationally acclaimed speakers in Drs. Mark Charrette and James Cox.
A special thank you to the Physical Facilities Department and the many student volunteers who contributed significantly to a successful weekend
