Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Alert, the most northern permanently
inhabited settlement in the world, will be celebrating its 50th
anniversary in September 2008. Events commemorating this milestone will
be held both on site at CFS Alert and at CFS Leitrim in Ottawa. One of
the major efforts being undertaken for the Alert 50th anniversary
celebrations is the creation of a photo album and calendar. Of
particular interest are: ANY/ALL shots taken indoors prior to 1978, pics
of the various “houses” post 1978, CBC shows, visiting dignitaries,
“Sunrise” and “Sunset” activities, mess activities (“FUGUM” nights etc),
Christmas celebrations, diagrams of building locations pre 1970, etc.
RMC alumni who were in Alert include:

16618 Major (ret`d) Ellis Barefoot (CMR RMC ’89) has been a Senior

Hello Class of 1984

How time flies by!

Can you believe that 2009 will mark 25 years since we marched off the
square on last time? Wow!

We are looking to celebrate our 25th reunion in a modest but thoroughly
enjoyable way. To do so we are hoping to find a few willing volunteers
(some things never change) to help with organizing the reunion.

The organizing committee would look to:

– Update our class list with current data.
– Work with RMC Club to map out major activities and then communicate
the details to all. Presumably we would want to celebrate our
accomplishments including the honour of being the first class to
graduate with both Lady and Gentleman Cadets.
– Organize a block of hotel rooms and a Friday night venue.
– A class slide show (perhaps we can ask our Commandant MGen Frank Norman to say a few words of introduction) on Saturday?
– Organize a class presentation to RMC.
– What ever else we want to do.

So, are some of you willing to pitch in and help with ideas and organization? If yes we would be
most grateful if you could signal your willingness to one of us below.
Looking forward to hearing from you if you want to help. We hope to have
our “first virtual meeting” in June 09.
