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 wonderful evening is being planned for everyone to reconnect, enjoy a lovely buffet dinner and have a chance to win one of our fantastic door prizes.   We are still in the planning process, so we shall keep you posted along the way.

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 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 1, 2019 as we need to know our numbers for food, etc.  (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.  

If you know of any classmates, teachers or office staff who are interested in attending, please have them email me (Sharon) at and I will be in touch.  

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!!

**Just a note:  NO outside alcohol or food will be allowed into the event.   Smoking is also not allowed inside the building, but designated areas are available outside.**

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

Cheers and Best Wishes,

Sharon, Val, Randall and your J.O. 79 Grad Reunion Committee
