VC - EGC - SHS International Reunion

Montreal, Canada, May 28-30, 2004

The Victoria College Association of North America

 The English Girls' College

The Sacred Heart School

Once again under the presidency of OV Samir Zalzal our joint school reunion was held in Montreal May 28th through May 30th 2004 and organized by dedicated volunteers representing all three schools.  This reunion was meant as a springboard to our International Reunion to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria early September2004.

The attendance in Montreal was record breaking and participants came from the U.S.A. , Canada and Switzerland !!

The weekend activities started on Friday May 28th with a Cocktail / Dinner reception held at the residence of OVC Armen Gunjian. Our hosts Chake and Armen as usual were most gracious with their welcome.

Then on the Saturday a Gala Dinner was held at the Hilton Hotel where participants enjoyed a beautiful reception starting with cocktails followed by a scrumptuous buffet dinner . Dancing was also on the menu till the early hours of the morning ......Memories of our youth were revived while dancing to the music of the 40-50-60s.

In accordance with the usual format our reunion was brought to a close on Sunday May 30th with a Farewell Dinner, this time it was Middle Eastern cuisine at the renowned Lebanese Restaurant Daou.

As was to be expected .....'All nice things come to an end '. However, our farewells were not 'Adieu' but rather 'Au revoir' because we will meet again in September in Bulgaria .....INCHALLAH !!
