Homecoming 2021 was a long-awaited gathering for the Vancouver College community. Students, parents, alumni, former staff, and friends came together to watch the Fighting Irish defeat STM 30-0.
In honour of John Nixon (VC'69), former president of Vancouver College, and Peter Fahrmann (VC'90), former president of the VC Alumni Association, the co-presidents of VCAA, on behalf of the alumni community, presented a VC alumni watch as an expression of gratitude for their service to the Vancouver College community.
Amongst the alumni in attendance, the Class of 1986 and the Class of 1996 had a breakfast reunion and a campus tour before the game. It was great to see alumni visit the school, many for the first time since the campus renewal, with their families and potential future VC graduates.
Congratulations to the football players and their coaches on their victory! Many thanks to all the staff members, parent volunteers and alumni volunteers for helping out and making Homecoming such a memorable event.
