Hello again Harry!

I have been in contact with a few people from MCHS through classmates.com. Just recently I have been in touch with Ross Mann whom I hadn’t seen since 1966. We met in Calgary last fall when we were visiting our children. I am a bit of a sentimentalist. Lately I have been looking up stuff on old Montreal. Somehow I came across a story on music groups from Montreal and learned that Gary Moffet was a member of the rock group April Wine. He is a guitarist. Who knew? On my profile I think there are a couple of pictures of the Old King Cole show we did. For sure you remember Nick America. I was close with the girl that played Bo-Peep but I cannot remember her name any more.

You certainly have a great memory but let me test you. One day I was at your house playing with all the kids from Morison. You had made something that I took a real fancy to and I asked you if I could have it. You gave it to me without hesitation. It was a great gesture on your part. I wish I still had the item because it was really neat. Do you remember what it was?

Are you going to the reunion in Toronto? I can’t go.

David

The work on the new MCHS 2015 website has been proceeding smoothly. Some additional work remains to be done but most of the technical challenges that needed to be addressed have now been looked after.

I’ve enjoyed having a bit of time off from posting blogs.

I’m very pleased that the Newsletters from Diana Redden and Howard Hight are working out so well. They are the primary means of communication between the MCHS 2015 organizing team and the reunion attendees and potential attendees.

I’ve also enjoyed some preliminary networking related to a possible way that the MCHS 2015 reunion can commemorate the 400th anniversary of Étienne Brûlé’s visit to the mouth of the Humber River – not far from where Old Mill Toronto is now located – in 1615. The reunion takes place on Oct. 17, 2015 at the aptly named Brûlé Rooms B & C at Old Mill Toronto. Background related to the 400th anniversary can be found here:
