Register J.O. 79, 40th Reunion



Hello Fellow  JO 79 Grads and Guests,

Our 40th Reunion is "ON" and we cannot wait to welcome each and every one of you.  A great evening has been booked and it includes a lovely buffet dinner, complimentary drink and have a chance to win one of our fantastic door prizes.   

Our 40th will be held at the Firefighters' Public House / Banquet & Conference Center (upstairs) in Burnaby on Saturday, September 14, 2019.  Doors will open for registered grads/guests at 5:30 pm (check-in, pick-up name tags and receive door prize ticket).  A cash bar is available and a wonderful buffet dinner will be served from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM.  After dinner we will have time to relax and enjoy reconnecting with fellow grads while listening to music from the late 70's to mid 80's.  Our evening will come to a close (final call) at 12:00 pm with the event ending at 12:30/1:00 AM.  We will notify you of any time changes, etc.

Ticket price:   $79.00 per person and spouses/significant other are welcome. 

For payment:  Please send an E-transfer (including your name) from your account to at Royal Bank of Canada and it will go directly to our JO79 Grad Account.  I will then send confirmation that it has been received.  

Tickets must be purchased by August 12, 2019 as we need to know our numbers for food, etc by Aug. 14th  (Sorry, refunds cannot be issued.)

If anyone can donate a door prize, please send an email to and a committee member will be in touch.  (The more we have the merrier the event!!)

Please spread the word to everyone associated with the John Oliver Grad Class of 1979.  We are still missing many fellow grads who have not updated their information and many who have not even registered at all.  There are also some who have bounced emails ... please call me 604-325-3624 (same as in our JO79 yearbook, Sharon Vizjak)!!

If you know of any classmates, teachers or office staff who are interested in attending, please have them call or email me at and I will be in touch.  I can also reset passwords for you and also change your email address too!!  (I am the only person with access to this part of the site.)  

If anyone would like to help with our reunion I could really use some! (Decorating, name tags, In Memorium table, calling for door prize donations, and a few more things for the evening.)   Most important:   Need help with finding people ... we need to do phone calls!!!

We are hoping for a wonderful turnout and look forward to welcoming classmates who might have left J. O. (grades 8-12) before graduating with us!!  I am so excited about this reunion and hope you are too!

Take care everyone and let's all keep in touch and reconnect on September 14th!!

Cheers and best wishes,

Sharon (Vizjak)Hives   &   Valerie (Anderson) Berg
