Have a look at the events alumni have enjoyed in the past - and plan to come to or help with one in the near future!
Queen's Rowing is an annual competitor in the Head of the Charles Regatta, one of the world's foremost rowing meets held here in Boston each October. Entering in several different categories each year, Queen's has brought winning crews in 1997 and in 2003, both times setting course records in the process. Alumni who come out for the races get to cheer on the rowing Gaels and can meet them after the races. (Click on the pictures for a bigger view.)
Every year the Queen's alumni office and the QUAA put together a terrific program as part of Alumni Assembly, the annual meeting of the QUAA. Joanne Muzzin and Peter Stokes from Boston attended past sessions in 2000 and 2002. Representing Boston at the Assembly is a great experience for a committed volunteer who wants to get energized to expand the branch's reach among New England alumni.

Queen's alumni are engaged in the most fascinating and cutting edge work going on in this remarkable city. In October 2007, research scientist Amanda Hubbard Sc '83 introduced alumni to MIT's fusion reactor at the Plasma Science and Fusion Center in Cambridge. In September 2008, art conservator Laura Lipcsei Arts '92 MAC '02 showed us the ancient and beautiful pieces she works with in the Objects Conservation Lab at the Museum of Fine Arts.

The Boston branch has a long history of pub nights, including several shared with the local McGill alumni. These have been rarer in recent years, but other social events have taken place, like a 2006 alumni potluck, a 2002 satellite-equipped party featuring CBC Olympics coverage, and curling outings to Petersham in March 2007 and November 2010.
