We owe thanks to Gina Davis Cayer for letting us know about this link. It’s a beautiful photograph.

By way of an update related to the Brûlé Rooms, where the MCHS 2015 reunion will take place on Oct. 17, 2015, a recent post is entitled:
[End of updates]
As we work on the launch of the separate MCHS ’60s Reunion website, which will be at MCHS2015.com, I’ve been thinking about some of the stories that we’d like to highlight on the static page, at the new website, that will be devoted to “Stories.”
One of the stories concerns a vivid recollection, by Ruth MacLeod in a comment at a previous post, about the day – with “all of us much agog in the windows overlooking the staff carpark,” in Ruth MacLeod’s words – that a Phys Ed teacher, Miss Soryl Shulman, turned up at the school driving a new Type E Jaguar sports car.
If anybody remembers what colour it was, please let us know.
Details regarding the colour of cars are of interest.
[As noted below, we’ve received the answer: According to reliable sources: It was dark blue, and it was a hard top, not a convertible.]
Update from Graeme Decarie
“It was Miss Soryl Shulman. She married Gibby Rosenberg, a very nice guy. I think she’s back in Montreal now, just back from a month or so in some jungle, building bamboo huts for the homeless. She keeps very busy. Gibby spent a year sailing around the world by himself. He started sailing before they married, working himself up from a Y flyer to a huge yacht, always aiming at the trip around the world.”
Jan. 10, 2015 subcommittee meeting
I’m also very pleased to share with you a photo of an MCHS Ring that Barbara Sayfy has shared with us. She’s on a Toronto-based MCHS ’60s Reunion subcommittee that met on Jan. 10, 2015 at the Old Mill Toronto restaurant.
Noreen McMillan, Barbara Sayfy, Heather Anne Liddell, Scott Munro, and Jaan Pill attended the Jan. 10 subcommittee meeting. We’ll have additional Toronto-area MCHS grads attending future meetings. The next meeting is on Feb. 28, 2015 at the Yellow Cup Café in the small plaza across from Cloverdale Mall. All Toronto-area MCHS ’60s grads (and retired ’60s teachers) are welcome to attend our subcommittee meetings. We also welcome MCHS grads from “out of town,” as the expression goes, at our Toronto meetings. Please contact me for details.
The January 2015 subcommittee meeting was highly productive.
We covered many points involving details of a kind that people think about when the planning for an event is really well under way.
We also spent quite a bit of time on content for the reunion evening, and on learning about each other’s respective stories as they relate to MCHS.
I’m really pleased that Howard Hight of Boston suggested that we get involvement from volunteers right at the host city. The subcommittee was formed as a follow-up to his great suggestion.
A number of us visited the Brûlé Rooms–people were very impressed. It’s a great setting for our Oct. 17, 2015 MCHS ’60s Reunion and Celebration of the ’60s. Preparations were under way in Brûlé Room C for what looked like a wedding reception.
In the hallway we came across an old-style coin-operated phone, which I wouldn’t be surprised is still in operation. That’s a nice touch for those of us who remember using such phones.
Our next meeting of the MCHS 2015 organizing committee, which meets in Kitchener, is on Feb. 4, 2015. Any person who attended (or taught at) MCHS at any point in the ’60s is welcome to attend any of our organizing meetings.
