Don't take our word for it.
Check out what people said about the 2013 reunion.
Just a quick note to say what an outstanding job the Committee did organizing the reunion. It was way beyond my expectations - and I think those of most others as well. A really special night.
I know that these things don't just happen. So many thanks for all the hours, labor and thought that went into this. Well done!

I just wanted to thank you again for all your efforts in planning the JXXIII reunion. It is a huge undertaking and commitment of personal time and energy and you deserve much credit. Please pass along my appreciation to all committee members and anyone else I am not aware of.
It is an amazing life experience to revisit high school memories and catch up with former classmates and teachers after so many decades.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the whole evening followed by brunch the next day. Your contribution in planning this event is such a gift to the alumni and gave much pleasure to each of us.
I wish you all the best for the future.

You did it!!! You organized a fantastic reunion and you should be very proud of it!!! Thank you all so very much for your hours and hours of hard work. I had a fabulous time, and any glitches that were mentioned I never even noticed. It was a very fun and happy event, and I’m grateful to all of you for organizing it. You all have a future in event planning!! Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet any of you; I was too busy gabbing with the class of 69. Thank you again and see you at the next reunion! (LOL)

I just wanted to say Thanks to you and the rest of the folks who worked so hard to pull off the event last Saturday. It was nice to rekindle old friendships.
You guys did a great job! Thank you for your efforts….please pass on my Thanks to all involved.

Hello to all who worked tirelessly at putting this reunion together!
THANK you all! It was wonderful and very well planned event. Congratulations to you!! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Saw many friends from the past whom we may now be able to rekindle friendships with for years to come. Sad for those who did not make the effort to come. They lost out on a wonderful evening.
Annick Brisson-O’Shaughnessy (Class of ’69)
Well done- I really enjoyed myself. You all did a fantastic job! Many of your classmates repeated again and again how lucky they were to attend John XXIII when they did, what a good school it was and so on. I've always thought that for the late 60's and early 70's, the School was a bit of an oasis in a time of turmoil in society and in education. It was nice to see how "normal" they all turned out. Define normal any way you want but I mean it in the sense of being productive and most of all, being happy. Your efforts gave me a chance to see that. Thank you.
Doug MacLean (Faculty)
What a great reunion you are your team organized last evening. It was truly a wonderful experience for everyone who attended. It was evident how much time and effort went into the preparations.
The choice of venue, the In Memoriam room, the welcome, the supper, the slides chosen were memorable, the entertainment with Joanne, Dave Morton walk down memory lane, the DJ, the MCing. Hope I didn’t miss anything. Please pass along to all the committee members a heartfelt thank you to each of them for a memory to be cherished for a long while.
Have a great rest after all the work.

Your committee did an amazing job-all that planning paid off.
Phyllis and I were so happy to be there-even if just for the cocktails.
We renewed with so many former students- too many alas now away from Quebec.
The Memorial Room was a thoughtful and inspired idea-the presentation respectful and beautiful.
Congratulations again --now you can rest and bask on your well-deserved laurels.

Hi to all who helped make such a wonderful evening so memorable.
I just had my sister, Janet and my other sister, Peggy and Grant McLean (my brother-in-law) over for dinner with Colleen Phillips (who is staying with us) and we have been re-living the reunion once again. We all had such a great time!! Thank you AGAIN for all your hard work! The event was a huge success!
Please pass on my email address too. It would be great to keep in touch.
Thank you all!
Cathy Brown-Fullarton (Class of ’72)
I think everyone is still on a wee bit of a "high". I know I have been in touch with a few that I have re- connected with. It was just a wonderful, nostalgic evening! Many many thanks to the committee! Well done!!!
Diane Stodola-Tourangeau (Class of ’70)
Thanks to all of you who spent so much time and energy planning this reunion. It is greatly appreciated and it was amazing!
Suzanne Rousse-Boyer (Class of ’72)
As mentioned, I had a great time and so did everyone else.
And the committee did an outstanding job.
I know you saw things you didn't like but we didn't.
So be sure to take the time to pat yourselves on the back!
Alice Reed (Class of ’70)
Kudos! Thanks for taking the time and the energy away from loved ones and friends so that others could have a very memorable time. Job very well done. My wife, Sandy, and I had a very memorable time. All the best.
Mr. John McDonaugh (Faculty)
You guys knocked it out of the park!
It was a classy event and the organisation you put together made it easy for us attendees to settle in and enjoy. I must say the music was well done taking into account our time period. The hotel staff were also very good. It seems you thought of everything, have you done this before?
I wish we could do it again!
In short, impressed, delighted and grateful for all who made it possible.
Your new fan,
Steve Sweeney (Class of ’74)
What a great job you and your committee did!
Thank you very much - it was clear to see that you worked very hard, and that is a sure sign that you truly cared.
Please pass on my sincere thanks to the entire committee.
I really appreciated attending the evening which you all produced.
