alumni UBC: Montréal Apple Picking

What an ideal and idyllic way to spend an autumn afternoon: picking apples in an orchard with family, friends, and fellow alumni in the Québec countryside! That’s what we’ll be doing at this family-friendly event, hosted by our alumni UBC Global Alumni Ambassador in Montréal, Lori Akiyama (Dip’09, Mktng/Sales Mgt). After picking apples, join us for some warm cinnamon sugar donuts, compliments of alumni UBC. Secure your spot to reconnect with your local alumni network — and to stock your pantry with your own hand-picked fruit.
