1967 - 1971 Curtis House Alumni


By now you likely have heard we are holding a reunion of the women who stayed in Curtis House in the early years. Can you believe it’s been 50 years since Curtis House first brought together young women from around the province and world? So many friendships formed and memories made – so many reasons to celebrate this milestone!

We are inviting all those who stayed in Curtis House anytime from September 1967 to December 1971 to join in a reunion weekend.

This will be held in St. John’s from September 22 to 24, 2017. We’ll hold four events to help the Curtis Cuties renew friendships and share memories – all while having a bit of fun. Partners/guests are welcome to two of the events (Spirit of Newfoundland and Sunday brunch). Here is what you will experience:
