This year’s reunion will be a luncheon at the Donalda Club on Tuesday, May 15

Greetings to all !

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.

It’s that time again. We are holding this year’s reunion as a luncheon, instead of the usual dinner.

From the initial responses, we are hoping to see many classmates, who have never joined us or we haven’t seen for quite a while.

It will be another fun time, as each year is different, always great, and as I always say "you have to be there".

Lunch – fruit punch – soup, salad, veggies, choice between chicken or

salmon, dessert & coffee. If a special lunch is desired – just let me know.

Cost is $ 45.00. There will be a cash bar.

There were many who told me how much they enjoyed viewing the CD with so many old EHCI pictures, given out at last year’s dinner. Unfortunately we didn’t bring enough for everyone who wanted one. Many have requested a copy. Please let me know if you wish one. If you don’t plan to attend, let me know & I will mail you a copy.

On our website there is much to view including past newsletters, information, pictures from the past and lots of pictures from earlier dinners. If you haven’t looked at it, I urge you to do so.

I would like to share with you part of an email I received from "Jackie Eaton", an Earl Haig student from the early fifties, also a beautiful cheerleader…

Love is better than anger;

Hope is better than fear;

Optimism is better than despair.

If you are interested in music from our era, you must check-out the website created by Russ Strathdee and Gary Copeland. They have put a lot of effort into it and have done a most amazing job. It really is terrific.

This will show a "home" page that changes every time we post another artist or band.

For an index of all artists/bands, there's this page: http://strathdee.wordpress.com/index/
