Annual Reunion in 2014

The Annual Canadian School Reunion was held yesterday (October 18, 2014) just north of Toronto, in Markham at the Dagon Legend Restaurant. The meal was attended by approximately 120 people, which is an all time high. Wonderful  to see such renewed interest in this history.

Accommodations can be booked at the Comfort Inn in Markham until Sep 16 when our block of 10 rooms will be released to the public, if not booked. The programme will be “How It All Began” – the story of the beginning of Canadian Methodist Church, now United Church of Canada, missionary work in China in 1891. Hear the story about that small, but amazing group of men and women from their descendants. For further information or to register your attendance, please contact me at the phyllis-donaghy@

  1. I plan to attend the luncheon along with my brother Bud (Lawrence) Crawford. His son, Stanley Crawford, has been living in Chengdu this past year and Bud was just there for Stan’s wedding. Bud’s and my great grandfather was Dr. V. C. Hart who helped establish the Canadian Methodist Mission in Chengdu. Prior to that he established numerous missions along the Yangtze River for the New York Methodist Board of Missions from 1866 on.

  2. I attended CS in Jenshow, school years 1940-41, 41-42,42-43.Also attended my sister Becky. I would love any news you may have regarding other students at that time–The Phelps kids, The Mathesons(originally from Winnipeg) the Urquarts, Effie and Jimmy Lim, Ming Chen, Franklin Chang, James Wong, Donald Jones, Frank Price,and any others?
    My mother was a house mother in Jenshow, and taught piano and music. My sister Becky is alive(and alert) in Blaine , Washington and should any of you like to call her(which she would love) her number there is
    360 223 4867.(3 hour time difference). I’m always home and my number in Florida is 321 784 4645. and I too would love to hear from you.

    1. I think you can find some of your classmates in Jenshow on the page of Classmates Biographies.

      Would you like to introduce something about your parents? Was your father a Canadian missionary in the West China Mission?
