Hilary Yates Clark, BHE’52, Med’90
On May 24, the home economics class of 1952 celebrated their 67th anniversary. The group, chaired by Anne Howorth, met at the Boathouse at Kitsilano Beach for lunch. All agreed that a yearly reunion was now necessary, and they plan to organize a get-together next year when everyone in the group will be in their nineties. The group’s longevity, says Hilary Yates Clark, is a testament to the healthy, nutritional lifestyle the alumni enjoyed during their four years at UBC.
Sandra Cohen-Rose, BHEc’58
Sandra Cohen-Rose has published her first novel, Waskaganish, available on Amazon and in Montreal bookstores. Waskaganish is a classic Canadian epic of love lost and found, brutality, and murder that stretches from the Polish pogroms to southern England to regions of Quebec affected by political unrest in the 1980s: Waskaganish, Montréal, and the Eastern Townships. The journey through the boreal forests of Waskaganish and the genteel urban quilt of the unique Montreal neighborhoods are described intimately as the lives of the leading characters emerge and the novel’s complex plot unfolds. Her previous books include Canadian bestseller The New Canadian High Energy Diet, as well as the first published book about Canadian art deco, Northern Deco.
