Residing In: Burnaby, BC Canada
Occupation: Jill of all trades for HYAK River Rafting


Yes! Attending Reunion
What have you been up to for the last 40 years?

As of August 27, 2014 I have retired after 27 years with the Federal Government. I LOVE Retirement as now I have been able to persue my love of sewing, scrapbooking and cardmaking and have actually been selling some of my creations.

I am still actively involved in working with HYAK River Rafting which I love. I classify myself as JILL of ALL Trades working with them. My official title so they tell me is the Food Manager but as I keep telling them that I do so much more I need the JILL of ALL Trades title.

Have you traveled? If so where?

Across Canada, up the Alaska Highway, Alaska, Hawaii, Tokyo, HongKong, Australia, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Turkey, Tahiti, Mexico, Caribbean, Costa Rica, Panama, Down the West Coast of the USA, New York, Colorado, Florida and I've actually forgotten a few places. I love too travel whether it be by car, hiking, boating - sailing and cruising, train, air or dogsled!
At our 35th reunion I wrote on our BUCKET List that I wanted to Raft the Colorado through the Grand Canyon and lo and behold I did this for 18 days in Sept. 2011. What a FANTASTIC journey that was. Hoping to do it again!
In Sept. 2012 I was lucky to be invited on a 1 week rafting trip down the Salmon River in Idaho. What a great time that was rafting with forest fires on both sides of the river and it was actually quite spooky yet spectacular going down the river with all the smoke. Seeing trees tumbling down the sides of the mountain all in flames was a sight to behold. Would love to do this trip again but without all the fires and smoke! As mentioned earlier, I stated I would LOVE to Raft the GRAND CANYON again and was so very, very LUCKY to be able to do this trip again in July of 2017! This time round was almost as good as the first time, though much, much HOTTER!

School Story:

I will aways remember being active with our School plays and helping out in the Costume department. What fun it was to do Fiddler on the Roof and My Fair Lady. Lot's of laughs and some tears also. A great group to work with.
I have been so fortunate to have reconnected with Yvonne Dysart (Duke) and visited with her up in Chase, BC. Karen Holden (Smedgaard) in Comox, BC and reconnecting with so many Elementary and Highschool friends through Facebook. Last summer - July 2018 I hosted a backyard BBQ and had Sandra Holman, Ruth Adams, Diane Luckow, Joanne Birdsell, Gail Fourchalk, Joan Fisher, Lori Jones and Helen Glavina all join in and what a great visit we all had! Hope to do this again, sooner than later!

So sad to hear of Bill's passing.  I have such good memories of BILLY GREEN in elementary school and like Sandra Holman says in her comment, he was always fun to have around with our different projects in Grade 7.  So sorry that we lost touch but my thoughts are with him.
