Letter to the Editor CLASS NOTES
BARRY BANKS (B.Sc. ’04) and JILLIAN BAMBRICK (B.Sc. ’04) were married May 21, 2011 at the Acadia Chapel. Barry works for C&C Technologies based out of Lafayette, Louisiana and Jill is enrolled in the Ph.D. program at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
30-year friendship began at Acadia Dear Alumni Office; Had to send in this picture of the three of us. Here are three ladies who graduated 30 years ago. This is the kind of friendship that can only come out of a special place called Acadia. Pam Kinsman, Linda Johnston-Williams and Dawn Matthews-Nichols (Fanny) had the pleasure of being graduates of Acadia: Pam and Fanny (’79) and Linda (’80), who is also the Class President of ’80. Linda and I had the chance to go to Homecoming last year and reconnect with many people we haven’t seen in years. We have had this friendship for over 30 years, with many special memories from Acadia. We all met during our Musicadian days and have been friends ever since. Both Pam and Linda have honed their creative sides into producing hand-painted stemware (Pam) and Linda creates hand-painted silk scarves. I ended up teaching in Calgary. So for young people looking to have a meaningful and special time at university while getting a top-rate education, Acadia is the place for you. We are living examples of having experienced it all at Acadia. Not bad-looking for some 50-year-old ladies, eh! Sincerely,
JESSICA OLIVER (‘09) and EREK FOX (‘10) were married Aug. 21, 2011 in Orillia, Ontario. They will be residing in the island of Curacao for Erek to continue his medical school studies.
Dawn Matthews-Nichols (Fanny, ’79, ’81)
