This is a post that originally appeared on June 6, 2014; it was updated on Jan. 12, 2015. Some of the details are no longer current, for which reason I’ve made further revisions. For technical reasons, the post was removed and is now being posted once again. The text follows:
First, we owe many thanks to Howard Hight for his work on 1) getting the database in place for names and addresses and 2) ensuring that we focus on making a quick decision on the date for the Malcolm Campbell High School Sixties Reunion.
We also want to thank the people who have volunteered to help Howard with the database. The database project is too large of a project for any one person to handle entirely on their own.

Peter Mearns has recently spoken with staff at Old Mill Toronto.
He reports that two out of three available ballrooms are available for October 17, 2015 for the reunion. A proposal is now being put together by the hotel.
We will seek to have a meeting of Lynn Legge, Peter Mearns, Scott Munro (if he’s available), Howard Hight (if he’s available) and Jaan Pill to get all the details into place, once we have the written proposal. We will likely meet in Kitchener. If anyone else from the Sixties MCHS classes wishes to attend, they are most welcome to join us for this planning meeting. Please contact me if you wish to attend the next meeting.
It would be a cash bar. As well, now is a good time to note that we want to ensure that every group has a Designated Driver so that we do not have any situations where safety concerns regarding even one person driving while under the influence. Having organized many Jane’s Walks and the like, I’m always thinking of the safety angle whenever a group of people get together.
A life of its own
We’ll have further updates. As has been the case for some time, my sense is that the reunion has long ago taken on a life of its own and is now moving forward at a steady clip. We much appreciate the interest that so many people have expressed in attending the MCHS ’60s Reunion.
