Less than two weeks to go!
Just 11 days left before the kick-off of the MD 80th Birthday Celebration and tickets are still available. Visit mountdougalumni.com for details on all events and ticket purchasing. But you better get the move on! Reminder: The easiest way to get your tickets is to purchase them safely and securely online, however if you prefer to pay by cheque, please call 250-704-0680 first and leave a message with your name and contact telephone number, name of event(s) and number of tickets wanted. Send a cheque made out to “Mount Doug Alumni Association” and mail it to “Mount Doug 80th” 3970 Gordon Head Road, Victoria, BC, V8N 3X3 in the correct amount to cover your ticket price. But mail by November 2nd as we can’t guarantee mail delivery! Sound difficult and too rushed? Well just buy them online!
And now for something completely different!
Did you know that the award winning movie producer, Atom Egoyan, attended Mount Doug? Well, now you do and to commemorate our famous alumni, his movie “Calendar” will be showing @ the UVic Cinecenta Theatre on November 16th. For details, visit the “Event” line-up on mountdougalumni.com
We have a mystery... can you help? What we hear is that a “time capsule” was buried sometime in the 50’s on the grounds of the orginal MD, what is now Cedar Hill Middle School. If you know where that original hole was dug, call 250-704-0680 and be sure to leave your name and telephone number – yes, there’s a prize for the correct information to find it!
We know you’d give us the coat off your back...
Thank you, but we actually only need to borrow it for our Fashion Show. Along with shirts, blouses, sweaters, hats, etc. If you have a clothing item from the past or perhaps a complete outfit, or would even like to model... we have a few more openings..., please visit mountdougalumni.com and click the “More” button under “Fashion Show” to see what we’re looking for.
Do you have archivist’s traits?
Oldest living MD student AND staff alumni?
We’d like to know who they are. Is it you or a MD relative or friend you know. Please tell us. There could be a prize here too! Call 250-704-0680 leave a message with your name and number.
You’ll be out of town but still want to have your say?
Hey buddy, can you spare me a dime?
We still need help building awareness of our celebration. If you already do advertising to promote your business or service, would you consider promoting our celebration @ the same time? Please let us know @ 250-704-0680.
What are you waiting for?
Remember, in the time it took you to read this you could have booked your tickets. Do it today and don’t be disappointed. Besides, it’s cheaper to buy early… Already done it? Super... see you there!
