The annual banquet is a favorite event because long time friends and colleagues come together, reminisce, and share exciting new plans.  Our dedicated staff cannot be thanked enough and it is so inspiring to recognize the decades of passion and dedication to Edmonton students and their families.  Many of the attendees this year had served well in excess of 20 years, with as much as 44 years! We had the pleasure of sitting with Joyce Eddy (Lee Ridge School) and her husband Bill, Craig Frizzell (Callingwood School) and his wife Mae (who taught our daughter in law Kim and son Andrew at Westminster Junior High), Lorraine Ringrose (Principal, Patricia Heights school) and her friend Bev Crossman (previous retiree and Principal of MAK), and Jennifer Wan (Ormsby School) and her daughter Janice.  The experiences and plans at our table alone were impressive and made me quite envious! Thanks again and bon voyage!
