|First Canberra reunion a success|
Lincoln University held its first alumni reunion in Australia’s Capital Territory on 13 November 2014. Initiated by alumnus Shane McDrury, and organised at the University end by Anisha Thomas in the Alumni and Development Office, the gathering was judged a great success.
The venue was the New Zealand High Commission in Canberra, where former Lincoln University staff member Robyn Byrne now works, and Becky Turnbull (nee Algie), the University’s Marketing and Brand Manager represented the Alumni and Development Office.
“The sun was shining and the High Commission was a great venue for meeting and socialising,” says Becky. “Alumnus Tim Perkins brought along some fascinating old photos, which led to a number of hilarious stories, and Catherine Mackenzie even found a family member in one of them. “Shane McDrury was a great organiser and host and I believe this will be the first of many Canberra alumni gatherings.”
