Thanks to everyone who attended the last reunion and made this donation possible. Not only did we have a wonderful time reuniting with our colleagues, but we were also able to raise enough to fund art projects in 2 OCDSB schools!



The Importance of Old Friends

Friends come and go, but with a precious few we should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
because the older we get,
the more we need the people who knew us when we were young.


Marjorie Loughrey Artists in the Schools Program

The profits from the 50/50 draw and the silent auction will be donated to the Marjorie Loughrey Artists in the Schools Program.

Marjorie made a significant contribution to education through her years as an Ottawa School Board Trustee. She believed that an education in the arts was fundamental to the emotional, intellectual and social development of each child, and this conviction led her to play a lead role in establishing the Canterbury School of the Arts. The award in her memory funds an artist to work for one week each year withall the students in one of Ottawa’s inner city elementary schools.


The Education Foundation of Ottawa administers the annual award.
