39th Biennial AASH Conference
The Opening Wine and Cheese Reception was a wonderful way to start off the conference. Many alums eagerly greeted one another and relaxed after a long day of travel due to weather related delays. In loving memory of Shelagh Mary O'Dwyer (1920-2012), alumna of Point Grey Convent of the Sacred Heart, Vancouver, British Columbia, Class of 1938, and in recognition of her devotion to the Associated Alumnae and Alumni of The Sacred Heart and her great love of AASH Conferences, her executor and friends made a legacy gift to AASH. The reception was in honor of and underwritten by the extraordinary gift from Shelagh's estate. The Sacred Heart values of generosity and joyous coming together were central to Shelagh's life and the gift will be a lasting legacy of this remarkable and beloved alumna.
