The 17th Annual Women's
CHAMPAGNE BREAKFAST
Thursday, March 1, 2001
  For the 17th year in a row, the women of Vanier College got together to celebrate the arrival of International Women's Week festivities by holding their annual Champagne Breakfast. The locale this year was the Theatre Arts department performance space. While eating a delicious meal consisting of eggs, croissants, paté, etc. and, of course, champagne and orange juice, participants were treated to some exquisite music provided by harpist Sarah Pagé and flutist Tammy Lynn Déry. Afterwards, this year's installation of the perennial "Bag Lady" sketch was viewed amid gales of laughter. The event continued with a PowerPoint presentation by Animal Health teacher Dr. Amanda Glew on the changing roles of working women and concluded with the awarding of "Woman Of The Year" to Dany Brown of Student Services. We invite you now to view some photos taken at this year's event.
