If you couldn’t make it to the 2010 Spring Soiree at Augustana, visit it through pictures of the special evening!

By Christopher Thrall –

On Tuesday, April 27, the Faith & Life Chapel on the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus in Camrose was draped with green and gold in honour of the 2010 Spring Soiree. Over 220 people from the region, the University and Scandinavia milled under a slide show of images from Augustana while they shared conversation and checked out the 2010 Report to the Community.

The evening was hosted smoothly by Garrett Thorson and Danielle Fostey. Recipient of a Metis Endowment Fund scholarship, Danielle plans to begin her law degree at Queens in September, while Garrett will be at Dalhousie for his Masters in Music.
Dean Ferguson-Pell of the University’s Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine spoke about the new Masters of Science in Physiotherapy degree. The program will be offered this fall.
Augustana’s Dean Roger Epp presented Elder Theresa Wildcat from Ermineskin Cree First Nation with the Alumni Citation Award. Mrs. Wildcat was celebrated for her contributions to Augustana, plus her lifelong commitment to education.
 University of Alberta Provost and Vice-President (Academic) Dr. Carl Amrhein was the final speaker of the evening. He commended Augustana Campus for starting programs that have been imitated across the University, and for building the foundation for our future in the Library and Forum.
 Guests ranged from University luminaries such as Augustana’s Assistant Dean, External Relations, Tim Hanson and Wetaskiwin-Camrose MLA Verlyn Olson.
 Savoury pinwheels, loaves of poppyseed bread and fresh-baked bannock were among the culinary delights provided by The Lefse House.
 Augustana’s newest McCalla Professor, Dr. Roxanne Harde, samples some Lefse House fare.
 Dr. Jeremy Mouat, Chair of Social Sciences at Augustana Campus, is pressed into service at the punch bowl.

At our Spring Soiree, Augustana delivers our Report to the Community. You can read the 2010 Report to the Community here.
