Joyce and Doug Lorimer

WLUFA and Dr. Max Blouw invite you to join us for a celebration honouring for their contributions to Wilfrid Laurier University

Doug and Joyce have spent the past 37 years in the History Department and almost as long working on union affairs. Joyce organized WLUFA’s certification in 1988, thus saddling Doug with the job of chief-negotiator when he returned from sabbatical. Both have served in administrative positions in the History Department and on WLUFA’s Executive. Their work in collective bargaining has been honoured by CAUT and OCUFA. Doug and Joyce will officially retire in June 2010. We invite you to join us in congratulating them for all their achievements.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by cash or cheque in the Academic Events Office (Arts Building 2C1) or by credit card at the following link:

A Tribute Page has been set up to celebrate Doug and Joyce’s contributions to Wilfrid Laurier University. Click on the link below to read a short biography of the Lorimers and sign the guestbook. You can also make a donation to the Lorimer Equal Chance Award. The award will reflect Doug and Joyce’s commitment to social justice by providing financial assistance to students from low-income backgrounds, many of whom are first-generation immigrants, and by encouraging them to access the benefits of a university education.

Please advise of any dietary restrictions. Seating is limited.
