Nicely done, New Yorkers

The McGill team

New York-based McGill graduates did their alma mater proud at a Terry Fox run held in Central Park. Forty-five McGill New York alumni and friends took part, raising more than $14,000 to help support cancer research, the second-highest amount raised by any team participating in the event.

Last fall, the McGill Alumni Association of Northern California organized a walking tour through San Franciso's world-famous Chinatown - the city's oldest neighbourhood.

Cracking up in Calgary

Economics professor William Watson, BA'74, well known for the dry wit he exhibits as a syndicated newspaper columnist and a past winner of a National Magazine Award for humour writing, recently ventured to Stampede City to serve as the lecturer for the Calgary Leacock Luncheon. Over 250 people turned out to brave quip-lash from Watson and moderator Derek Drummond.

In tune with fellow alums

Ottawa Alumni Choir

Soojin Yu, BA'98 (at extreme right), likes to sing and she likes company while she's doing it. So last year, the music lover started up the Ottawa McGill Alumni Choir. The choir now numbers over 20 members and has been performing at seniors' residences and other venues. Anyone interested in finding out more can contact Soojin.
