It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Helen Armstrong who served as the Department Chair for the Nutrition and Food Services Management program during her time at Langara College. Helen was a generous and compassionate philanthropist who was remembered fondly by many colleagues and graduates of the program.
The B Building was full of holiday spirit, with competing departments situated in close proximity to each other, all vying for the coveted prize of donuts and coffee with the senior leadership team!
The winner of the 2017 holiday door decorating contest is the Executive Office!!!! They outdid the competition with a door covered by an ugly sweater person made out of more ugly sweaters! Some of the design contained references to Seinfeld ‘Festivus for the rest of us’, a very tall cardboard of our own Dr. Lane Trotter dressed in the holiday spirit, and the best was the ability to take an “elfie” through the glass panel. Lastly, department members were fully invested in their concept by dressing in ugly sweaters (and bribing the judges with sugar cookies may have helped)!
Honorable mention goes to:
- Deans’ Office – The Polar Express
- Alumni Relations, Langara College Foundation, Communications & Marketing – Gingerbread Village
- People Services – Fireplace and Christmas Tree (complete with a life sized version of Dawn Palmer as Mrs. Clause)
Thank you to everyone who participated, especially our judges, Kristine Nellis, Darrell Kean and Lane Trotter – and their Site Supervisor, Dawn Palmer. Click here to view all the holiday fun!
