“Dal is where my profession and my greatest friendships were born. I met two women while I was taking BA. I might never have guessed it at the time, but they turned out to be my friends for life. Lynne Frank, Ann McDonald and I have reunited just about every year for more than 30 years, even though we have rarely lived in the same city. We jokingly call ourselves, The Tripod. We have had memorable reunions at Stratford and in New York City, celebrated marriages and children and professional triumphs; seen one another through the loss of partners and parents and siblings. We share fond memories of our student passes to Neptune Theatre, lunches at the "Spanish House" and Friday afternoons spent at the Grawood Lounge (when honestly we were supposed to be in class). I went on to become a journalist. My very first stories were published in "The Dalhousie Gazette". Lynne became a lawyer and Ann, a communications specialist in the arts and later, academia. Our 2018 reunion will be here in Halifax.”Christine M.
