QCCC Celebrates its 25th Anniversary!

Time really flies. It is hard to believe that QCCC started off with its humble beginnings in 1991 and has continued to be a welcoming community for students. On June 5, we organised a 25th anniversary celebration at Angus Glen Community Centre and invited alumni and current members to reconnect and indulge in the festivities. 
Featuring the debut of our brand new QCCC banner!

Some of the activities that took place were mainly for nostalgic reasons as they have been QCCC traditions for many years. The Curtain Game, for instance, has been a traditional icebreaker for many of our Open Houses, and still proves to be an exciting way of getting people to know each other. Reverse charades, where one person guesses and everyone else acts out a phrase, and Broken Telephone Pictionary are the two other activities that have been in our activity repertoire for many years too.
Who's behind the curtain? 
Oh hi there. Do you know my name?

Mmm, lunch.
After a sumptuous lunch, the current executive members then gave a presentation updating alumni on the recent happenings and challenges that QCCC faces. We were also shown some old photos of how QCCC was like from 1995 to 1999, including how Newman House used to have carpeted floors and bright green wallpaper.

What's up QCCC?
No QCCC gathering is complete without a Singspiration session and we were blessed to have a gifted guitarist and fellow alumni to perform the instrumentals for us.

What about a massive cake and a group photo? We also had that in mind.

Let's have some fun before eating the cake!
QCCC has been going strong for 25 years and we hope it will go strong for even more generations to come. What is in store for us in the future? Only time can tell.
